About Me

I served as DP of a nationally distributed feature when I was 18, studied cinematography and directing at USC, worked for talent at the highest level. I quickly understood that the best way to make great films is to spend your 20s working outside the industry, pursuing some other form of meaningful work—because all the connections in the world are inadequate if you have nothing compelling to say. So, I became a firefighter in one of the nation's biggest 9-1-1 systems and am now in development on films inspired by my experiences.

I enjoy taking the same passion I have for my own projects and putting it to work for other talented filmmakers. I'm a producer first and foremost, but cinematography and camera work will always be in my DNA.

I have been in the industry since 2005.
