One month after graduating from the University of Miami Motion Picture Program, I found myself in Los Angeles working on my very first movie... which ended up being a skin-a-max flick. Aside from the many naked women that were constantly walking around the set, and the twenty-five dollars a day I was paid, I was unable to really take any solid life lessons away from my first Hollywood film experience. (Yes, they actually shot on film.) From there, I was fortunate enough to land a job as a PA at a major movie studio (a real one!), and spent the next year of my life making coffee, washing golf carts, and doing all the other menial assignments that no one else wants to do. But it was a fun time and someone must have noticed my awesome script copying skills, because I was soon hired up to work for the co-owner of the studio and spent the following 6 years doing just that. I learned more about this business in that time then I could have ever imagined and truly am grateful for the time I got to spend watching how Hollywood worked from the inside out. But watching was not what I moved from back east to do, so I decided to part ways with the studio system and head out on my own to make movies. Since leaving the comforts of the steady pay check I've been able to write and direct a handful of shorts and specs, complete a few screenplays that will never get made, create a web series for youtube, and play hours upon hours of Call of Duty: Black Ops.
