I am an artist by nature. I've had the opportunity to work on a variety of film projects in a variety of positions. From being a talent in front of the camera to actually being behind the camera & almost everything in between. I attended the Art Institute of Atlanta where I studied Visual communication before switching over to Computer Animation. I also attended Tidewater Tech in Newport News, VA where I studied Web Design. The many projects I've worked on have been commercials, music videos, Major films to Indy films & web series. I am currently working on an animated TV series as a voice actor. I love the film industry & have been fascinated with movies & animation, as well as comic books, since I was a child. But who wasn't right? I've always known that working in film is where I wanted to be. It is the one industry that allows me to use all my natural born talents under one roof. As a child I dreamed of being a comic book artist or an animator for Walt Disney. I created my own characters & storylines for the comic books I drew as a child. This was my first steps into screenwriting, unbeknownst to me. I love reading & writing & English was one of my strong points throughout my school years. I began acting on stage early in my childhood doing school plays & community plays. I draw, I paint, I act, I write, I spend nights immersed in Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere, Flash & Indesign. Being behind a camera, whether still or moving images is all love for me. My ultimate goal & dream job, other than being a photographer & filmmaker for National Geographic, is Directing. Yes I've loved movies since I was born, but the one thing I always made a habit of doing is learning about the Directors of some of my favorite films. Yes I was the kid that actually read the credits. I buy Blu Ray disk just for the behind the scenes extras. Or these days it's primarily Vudu. I am here to learn & connect. I am by far not in the heights & rare air in this industry but I aspire to be.
