Personal Quote:

Filmming any aspect of life is what I love; it drives me to bring your idea, your story, to life. Features, shorts, documentaries, and any form of visual communication are what I want to shoot. I always use your time wisely and never aim to waste a minute or a dime.


Winner, Oscar College Search Experience.
