My creative work started while I was a projectionist at a local movie theater. Slated to go into corporate management, things took a different direction when joking around with a fellow employee about comedy in the workplace. Our screenwriting followed and the beginnings of my visual storytelling and film editing had me hooked.
Since the early days of threading films for moviegoers, I've shot, edited, produced, and directed countless documentaries, short films, tributes, promos, webisodes, and multiple narrative features in the independent film space— resume / IMDB. My work has been seen at numerous film festivals on the west coast including Seattle, Newport Beach, San Diego, and in Burbank, winning Best in Show for "Runyon: Just Above Sunset". My largest documentary project, "Trace Amounts", took 4 years to complete and comprised of over 300 hours of raw footage and archival clips. We premiered at the Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood, which received enormous praise by celebrities advocating for clean vaccine policy for children.
