I have always been a writer since I was child running about on my tippy toes. At first I never thought much of this 'hobby' but my mind kept drifting back to it. For awhile I was tired of putting aside the one thing I had an undying passion for.
In November 2015 I found out about film school and it became my new goal. Now I know that there are many ways to learn film so I have dedicated my time to teaching myself as much as possible. Even doing small projects here and there for experience.
I want to be free creating the very things that made my day every time I put my studies aside. I want to direct movies. I want to write books. I want to inspire youngsters like myself that you don't have to go down the traditional path, find your own and do what you love.
This is the path for me and I will not stop until I am satisfied with my use of the talents God have given me.
