the beginning

Originally from the South-side of Chicago, my interest in Directing started as a child, growing up my dad directed a local t.v show about life on the south-side of Chicago. Growing up in that environment exposed and trained my eye for detail and craft.

I started my directing career in the Navy as a Mass Communications Specialist. I wrote, produced, shot and edited videos and documentaries on various military operations all over the world. Over the course of 9 years, I traveled to 16 countries including a deployment to Afghanistan.

After the my military career, I attended the School of Visual Arts where I received my B.A. in Advertising followed by a M.P.S in Directing. In my time at SVA I directed several short films and commercials that have been featured in film festivals around the country.
