I can't wait to share my story with you all, but to be honest, I didn't know what I was getting myself into when I picked up a camera in fifth grade, but I thank God every day that I did. I am grateful for the journey, the opportunities I've been given, and the talented people I've met and collaborated with along the way. It's been a blessing and there's still so much more to come.
Since the fifth grade, I had a desire to create; I developed a passion for photography and the filmmaking process. I couldn’t wait for TBS’ dinner & a movie just to watch the behind the scenes and hear the director discuss the film. I never knew the relationship between the two. When I realized the connection between photography and filmmaking, I began to wonder how my still photos would translate into motion picture form. I was shaped by the skateboard & hip hop culture growing up, and then started writing songs and playing in garage bands. At that moment, I started making things and discovering and exploring more. I started designing myspace pages for bands and creating EPK’s for artists my senior year of high school.
Throughout middle school and high school, I continued creating, which led to my acceptance at The Art Institute of California, Santa Monica.
I was in my own little world at The Art Institute until I started collaborating with talented, like-minded individuals which further led to groundbreaking projects. While I was working on collaborative passion projects, I continued to build my brand as a freelance photographer & filmmaker. The best part about where I am today is that my work both motion and still has gotten me here. They did and still do continue to open doors for me.
I’ve pursued my art education for a span of over 6 years and have directed and worked on countless industry projects, I can't wait to continue turning the page of this new chapter and seeing where the future takes me.
