Born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts I began producing content for WCAT in secondary school. My University education at Syracuse University's College of Visual and Performing Arts has made me a well rounded filmmaker. Through Junior year I began to focus on cinematography, and I am grateful for the international experience i received while studying cinematography while enrolled at FAMU in Prague, CZ; Europe's premiere film academy. Returning home I began to invest in my future by returning to work at WCAT as the studio's Director of Photography. My role at the studio reminds me daily to improve my skills and continue to study the craft of cinematography and story telling. Along side WCAT I run a freelance operation, using my skills for more experience, and more relationships with people just as passionate about their story of their trade as I am. Filmmaking for me is a trade, however it started out as play, something to do in the back yard with friends. I keep true to the montra " do what you love to do, and you will be great" very closely. My craft brings me happiness, and I know it delivers that sentiment to the audience.
