Documentary Film Maker

I have written, directed, edited and produced a Short Documentary about the Cosmos, Science and a very large plethora of questions I have about life and death. It is based on Carl Sagan's Cosmos Television Documentary series, which served as my primary inspiration.

Music Video Producer

I recently completed my first music video entitled "The Truth", which is about world revolution and political controversy. My best friend recorded the song several years back and I recently shot and edited the video for him. Go To YouTube

Award Winning Short Film Maker

I wrote a short story entitled "The Unforgettable Mistake" in 2007 and subsequently had it published in a national writing contest called "Polar Expressions". Several years later, I converted the story into a shooting script and spent several months hiring a professional Director of Photography, a sound guy, renting lighting equipment and completing location scouting and all other film making duties. I shot the short film in a church in one late August day over about 10 hours and edited throughout the fall. The film was subsequently submitted to festivals spanning the globe and won 2 major awards and was nominated for "Best Original Short Film Screenplay" at the World Cinema Film Festival in London.
