I was always that kid in school. The cinephile nerd obsessed with all things film. Spouting off quotes from films and analyzing the work of David Fincher, Quentin Tarantino, M. Night Shymalan, etc. By the time I graduated high school, I'd completed three feature length screenplays with hopes of launching my directing career from my own stories. However, somewhere along the way I transitioned into filmmaking as a cinematographer on indie shorts, web series, music videos, and virtually everything under the sun but my own feature films. Sure, it was good money and less headaches but it wasn't what made me dream as a kid. So at this point in my career, I'm hitting the hard reset and returning to what initially inspired me and looking to connect with other passionate creatives along the way.
