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 been a teacher for most of my life. I have created 100's of insruction videos and most are on Youtube. It is a real joy to teach. I learn so much from other through the teaching experience.

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.
