I'm an authentic guy who believes in craft and precision. Whether it's building websites (my current profession), expanding my graphic design skills (what I studied in college) or pursuing my dream (filmmaking), I desire to communicate through a high level of professionalism.
When not talking cameras and tech, (like how I built my own color-grading hackintosh), I'll tell you about why I love Jesus Christ and why He is the only way to God. I'm unashamed to influence culture toward ABSOLUTE TRUTH through the art of film-making. My faith is first and foremost.
I'm tired of films that have no soul and life to them; I'm tired of politically correct films that never dare to broach hard topics of the day; I'm tired of films that only use Jesus and God as curse words; I'm tired of cheesy Christian films; I'm tired of the anti-God rant that many films succumb to.
There needs to be change in the industry and audiences are ready to embrace authentic, unashamed, BOLD truth regarding God, purpose, the meaning of life and salvation.
I will write, create, shoot, direct and edit films that will make people think. People will leave the theater but my films will never leave their heart.
