It starts with half of me as a sperm and the other half of me as an egg. And for 30 years, both have been separate from each other. And then...union. And 40 weeks later, escape.
I've been a cinephile since I was born. I remember from a very early age, I could memorize dialogue. Then when I was about ten years old -- I can't remember the year -- I saw Steven Spielberg's JAWS for the very first time. That was when I got serious about wanting to be a director.
I've graduated from Scottsdale Community College with a degree in Film Production and three certificates in Screenwriting, Production: Film, and Editing. I've operated the boom and the dolly. I'm also an editor, and have edited two short movies for someone else. I'm always willing to learn other aspects of moviemaking.
I started my day-gig at Harkins Superstition Springs 25 on December 23, 2013, and left May 4, 2017. I loved it over there. I really did. I currently work as an assistant manager at Harkins Valley Art, starting May 5th, 2017.
I have a YouTube page, where you can see my short films
Currently, I'm building a reel and a résumé. And hopefully, you'll be able to see both sooner rather than later.
Unique traits: A photographic memory, detail orientation, a nice personality, and a love of movies.
