Aside from a serious infatuation with Honey Bunches of Oats and the Land Before Time soundtrack, I might broadly define myself as a lover of all things visual, aural, or both. After earning an MFA in Film Production from UT Austin, as well as a dual degree in Business and Communication, I dove into freelance commercial work with companies ranging from Microsoft to the New Zealand Department of Tourism and a variety of oddities in between. I attribute most of my growth as a filmmaker to experimentation outside of academia, and have lived, studied, and worked in New Zealand, Egypt, Fiji, the Dominican Republic, and Japan, continuously assimilating foreign styles into my own personal methodology; a self-proclaimed film mutt in every respect. My filmmaking philosophy is to be utterly purposeful in every aspect of the art. Creatively, my goal is to make films that resonate deeply in people, be it visually, contextually, or better yet, hilariously.
