A very passionate screenwriter and director, I have been highly interested in film ever since my first screening of Thunderball when I was a child. Growing up in a small town my productivity and creativity grew from being around a land with almost nothing to do. Its helped shape my passionat drive that still burns today. After graduating high school in 2008, I went to the local Cossatot Community College of the University of Central Arkansas to get my general education. When I completed that, I transferred to the University of Central Arkansas in Conway, AR. There I studied film, used the most professional equipment, and made connections as the UCA Digital Filmmaking programs is one the few film school programs in the nation to have made a feature length film. I've done every position of a film set be it class demonstrations or on a true set, I've gripped, I've lighted, script supervised, done visual effects, produced, written, and directed. My roots here in the Arkansas community have led to be partnered with creative and innovative people. I'm experienced in Final Cut Pro, HitFilm Express 2, Adobe Photoshop, After Effects, InDesign,and Microsoft Office.
