About Me

Filmmaker & Visual Storyteller. 

Born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, I grew up surrounded by cowboys, trucks, and homophobia. I now live in Los Angeles, where I enjoy not being gawked at for wearing nail polish.

I study at USC's School of Cinematic Arts, where I wrote and directed my first film, "A Mother's Soliloquy," which was shortlisted for the 2020 Student Academy Awards. I'm currently taking a break from Zoom University® to focus on my craft.

My work blends narrative filmmaking with poetic cinema. Coming from a background in dance films, my approach to filmmaking brings together unique storytelling devices - movement, dance, worldbuilding, visual music - to provide imaginative and thought-provoking experiences.

 

 My willingness to challenge convention has landed me awards for Best Director, Best Performance, and Best Cinematography at various festivals.  I learned early on that I don't like tradition, and I've since committed to re-imagining storytelling through motion picture.

Through my work, I aim to give voice to stories and characters  that have been undertold, while simultaneously sharing a part of myself with you; in hopes that we might share a small  facet of this human experience together.
