About Me

Award-winning writer, director, photographer, and videographer based in Dallas, Texas, with 4 years formal filmmaking education and 6+ months professional experience.

Known for my well-structured scripts and my intimate style of directing, I specialize in crafting compelling, character-driven narrative short films and webisodes, though I do occasionally venture into the realm of music videos, advertisements, and experimental film.

I have written and directed 5+ well-received short films, 3 of which have been widely screened in film festivals across Texas. My fourth short, "NOVA," has been screened at the Dallas International Film Festival, the North Texas University Film Festival, the SMU Student Filmmakers Association Spring Showcase, and the Victoria TX Indie Film Fest, the latter of which presented me with the Frels Award for Best Student Film. "NOVA" has also garnered me an award for Outstanding Creative Achievement in Film and Media Arts, presented by the distinguished faculty of the Southern Methodist University Film Department.

Thank you for taking the time to examine my profile! I look forward to working with you on your next project.

I have been in the industry since 2019.

"Ariel" by Sylvia Plath
Added on 12/18/2019
An experimental video companion to Sylvia Plath's poem "Ariel." A completely independent project, I was responsible for every aspect of the production aside from being on screen. I served as the director, cinematographer, art director, gaffer, editor, colorist, and VFX artist.
