My passion is developing stories for film and working to bring all the elements of a production together to create a compelling story on screen. I know that guerrilla filmmaking process is vastly different from production operating under union rules with a full crew and studio resources. My professional goal is to be a producer. I will start wherever I need to learn everything I need to know.
I am currently working to build a production company in Tennessee that will focus on creating a sustainable model for producing film and television within the state of Tennessee and across the greater South. Our goal isn't to bring huge blockbuster productions to the state but rather to elevate the voices and talents of Southern filmmakers. We want build a sustainable industry in Tennessee that brings the creativity of Southern filmmakers to life rather than it being wasted on the vast Hollywood machine or worse, never being cultivated at all.
