About Me

Writer I Director I Storyteller

I was born north of Knoxville, Tennessee in a little town in the shadow of the Great Smoky Mountains. After making homemade short films throughout high school I moved to Orange, California where I attended Chapman University and graduated with a BFA in Film Production in 2018.

For nearly a decade I have had the pleasure to screen films at multiple national and international film festivals on four continents. For an East Tennessee boy, it has been a truly humbling experience to see these stories and films enjoyed and honored with awards. But I am ever-conscious of the responsibilities of a storyteller.  My hope is that I can use my content to break down stereotypes and misunderstandings. I want to portray underrepresented and diverse cultures, like the Appalachian region I call home, in an honest and intimate way.

Whether it's a documentary, film, commercial, or music video, I want to bring your story to life with every detail and feeling that makes it unique to you as a brand, company, or creative. Let's get started.
