I am a director, screenwriter, and cinematographer from Dallas, TX. I have studied film and cinematography from Stephen F. Austin State University (Nacogdoches, TX) where I will be graduating with a Bachelors of Fine Arts, December 2015. Through my short three years at SFA I have written and directed 5 short films, DP'd 6 short films, camera operated over 9 short films, 1 feature length film, and 1st Assistant Camera another feature length film. In addition, I have experience camera operating for ESPN 3, live television and Internet streaming.
The goal is to keep striving to write and direct my own shorts, and feature length films from indie low-budget films to high budget films in L.A. and Hollywood one day. I want to tell my stories through film, to inspire others, and express creativity everyday.
