SIMPLICITY IS THE BEST APPROACH TO STORYTELLING

I'm absolutely in love with filmmaking, it is my favorite artform because it demands attention to detail, team work and an unified vision. I have been so fortunate to spend the last five years in California learning and developing my filmmaking skills.

I founded, along with my good screenwriter friend, the Sharpen Experiment. Which consists of ten short films made in the course of a year, with the intent to grow our experience in running sets, crew, and story content while sharpening our skills as filmmakers.

I've also had the opportunity to work in film festivals as a programmer (started out as an intern at Palm Springs International Short Fest). I was able to learn more about distribution of independent films, and see what kind of film sells to a wide audience. I carry this experience when making my own films and intend to stay involved in the festival world. This year I'm also programming for Newport Beach Film Festival
