BIOGRAPHY

As far back as I can remember, I’ve had a passion for filmmaking. When I was five, my parents gave me a behind-the-scenes documentary on the making of Tony Scott’s "Days of Thunder," one of my favorite movies as a child and as a car-enthusiast. Even at such a young age I was captivated and inspired by all the creativity, choreography, and collaboration that took place on a film set.

I admired and practiced filmmaking throughout my childhood and all the way through college. At the University of Central Florida I studied film production and entrepreneurial business at both undergraduate and graduate levels. During my undergraduate studies, I wrote, produced and directed five short films that were awarded at fifteen film festivals worldwide, most notably the Young Cuts International Film Festival in Montreal, and the Aesthetica Film Festival in the United Kingdom. After film school, I wrote, produced, and directed my first feature-length film, THE DRIFTER, that was acquired by Distributor Terror Films and is now available on worldwide digital platforms. http://www.terrorfilms.net/film/drifter
