About Me


I'm a fluffy-headed filmmaker raised in mid-Missouri who will always have a soft spot for the heartland. I received my bachelor's at the University of Missouri with an emphasis in Marketing. Upon my graduation, I began my storytelling education through the simple art of shooting and editing. My first feature film won best cinematography at the Chain NYC Film Fest in 2018. Now residing in Los Angeles, my passion for filmmaking drives me to continue to craft emotional images, collaborate with others and tell even greater, more impactful stories.
