I believe that an artist should consistently educate and challenge himself about two things: his craft and the world around him. We live in an ever-changing world filled with immense possibilities and daunting challenges. The internet reflects this fast-paced world. Films explore deeper trends. The cinema has the power to capture our collective thought bubbles honestly while tilting our thoughts toward greater things.
As a director, I try to tell stories that resonate on a deeply emotional level, while also giving voice to my own boundless optimism. There is within each of us a deep-seated capacity for improvement. In all of our daily struggles, it is hope, and belief in the impossible, that defines us as human. It is with this perspective that I wish to bring my own creativity to the fore.
I went to Emerson College in Boston before moving to Los Angeles to begin a career in film. I've worked in television, film, commercials, and EPKs. More recently I spent about a year at the Africa Channel as an Assistant Editor, during which time I also shot a feature film, which I am still editing. Finally, I've just finished a short form documentary for Panhandle Twenty/20 exploring the implications of poverty in the Texas Panhandle.
