FILMWORK

When I was 10 years old, I found my father's long-forgotten Sony Hi-8 camcorder buried away in the back of a closet along with some half-spent tapes... After a little battery charge, I brought that dusty old camera back to life and began recording everything I could, burning through hours and hours of tape. I certainly didn't know it at the time but this little childhood discovery would end up changing my life forever. Over the next couple years, my collection of action figures served as my "actors" as I painstakingly attempted stop-motion animation and explored basic tape-to-tape editing with several VCRs I wired together... Eventually, I saved up enough money mowing lawns for old ladies to purchase a MiniDV camcorder and a computer equipped with some video editing software - thus entering into the age of nonlinear editing! With this new power, I was hooked - I put the toys away, got some friends to help me out and I've been making films ever since! There is truly no greater feeling.

 

Featured below is a curated selection of films that I have produced over the years. All films listed below were written, directed, and edited by me unless otherwise stated. Please know that some of the more recent films are currently in the festival circuit and cannot be made available for public viewing at this time.
