I was born in Nashua, NH and am a graduate Film/Video major from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Primarily working with experimental narratives, I've written, directed, and photographed a number of films with common themes of dreams, memories, and disillusions. Much of my interest in my films is not so much telling, but showing, with a strong focus on the film’s visuals. I strive to portray my character’s internal struggles and psyches through visual expressions and alterations of the film’s environment. With an interest in more unconventional filmmaking, I hope to create films which encapsulate the audience into another world.
