the short version:
I was supposed to be saving up for car.
Instead, at the age of 13, I purchased a video camera.
Making videos throughout my teenage years kept me (mostly) out of trouble.
By age 20 I was attending Chapman University for writing and directing film and television. There I was nominated as best new filmmaker for my short film "Disappearing".
In 2007 my 30 minute short film "The Isolationist" played at the Cannes film festival.
Since then I have kept busy, working with a variety of clients and companies, from local small businesses to international corporations.
I currently live in Orange County with my wonderfully talented wife, daughter and a new addition expected in early June.
Making videos still keeps me (mostly) out of trouble.
