“My background, like my films, is multi-disciplinary. From an early career in healthcare, to crisis counseling, and then law enforcement, I’ve always worked around people who were experiencing challenging situations. I believe that everyone has a story as a result of the challenges we all face. The best part of working, either on my own projects or with clients, is that I get to connect with strangers and get to know their stories. I’ve come to find that most people are stronger and have a far greater impact on their world than they think they do. Me? I’m just a regular guy who learned how to make movies.”

“As the son of two Marine Corps and law enforcement veterans I followed in their footsteps. I spent four years in the Marine Corps, six in the Georgia National Guard and six years as a police officer in Atlanta. I have learned during my short time that everyone has a story. A story that may not seem grand to the person living it but is an extraordinary adventure to those outside looking in. Giving light to these adventures and showing others is an amazing feeling.”
