Biography

I recently had the opportunity to write and direct a project for the Filmaka DISCOVER film challenge. My team produced a short film that examined how winning a million dollars can touch many lives. Our film was shot June 2010 in Santa Barbara, CA, using a Red one camera package and a crew made up mainly of students from USC film school, where I'm working on finishing up an MFA in film production. In August 2009, I traveled overseas to produce an award-winning Filmaka short for DIRECTV, an action-packed epic-inspired film which was shot on location in Shanghai, China. My introduction to Filmaka was writing for the Lincoln Rising Stars project, where I pitched a music video concept which was produced and used in association with the CBS and Lincoln Grammy promotions in January, 2009. I've been developing digital media and online content for several years, for brands and organizations like Best Buy, Dunkin' Donuts, the AFL-CIO, Famous Dave's and Marriott. My professional work has ranged from large-scale independent documentaries, writing spec. commercials, assisting on network TV productions, shooting web content and working with film projects in almost every capacity. In my free time, I enjoy learning more about visual effects elements and better ways to promote and distribute online content. I'm always looking for ways to raise the bar and take my work to the next level. I believe chance favors those in motion, so I stay busy and am always open to new opportunities, especially commercial projects and other film opportunities with filmmakers from around the world
