I'd like to think my style never steers too far from the storytelling that made me fall in love with film as a kid.
Raised in Detroit, I spent my early childhood developing my visual sensibility by drawing, painting and taking photographs every chance I had. There was plenty of inspiration growing up in a neighborhood as ethnically and racially diverse as the area surrounding my 6 Mile and Woodward address.
My move to LA brought me the opportunity to learn filmmaking using a very hands-on approach; beginning with work as an art director on a Slamdance Audience Award winning film, and carrying through to every job a film set had to offer.
I ultimately got a chance to hone my directing and writing skills in the post production world, working as an editor both freelance and in-house with ad agencies and production companies around LA. I've edited tons of content, including commercials, music videos and short films which I've also written and directed and sometimes shot.
2017 saw my short film, Hello, which I wrote and directed, welcomed as part of the Cannes Short Film Corner in France.
I stay busy in between projects with more projects and family time.
Currently, I'm writing the script for what will be my feature film directorial debut. And juggling time between all the people and things I love in life.
