The Creative Process...

I am a multi-disciplinary artist. I love working with other artists in a creative environment. I have found that having a diverse film background gives me a better sense of the entire filmmaking process. I am confident working as a director, writer or in other supportive roles.

Effects Artist

The foundation of any movie is the story. I have written six features scripts and 50+ shorts. My strengths are in comedy, drama and sci-fi.

Having a clear vision of the project is as important as watching the script evolve while the actors bring the story to life.

I have worked with most off-line editing systems. Editing is one of my favorite parts of post-production. I enjoy compiling a story and watching it unfold during editing.

I started in Makeup effects as a teenager. Art comes natural to me. I feel my effects background gives me a better since of composition when directing a shot.

2017 to 2020 total of 8 Nominations:

Best Feature Script, Music Score
