I was born and raised in the proudly ordinary, middle-class town of Fountain Valley, California. My love of filmmaking began with my father’s Handycam and some schoolyard buddies in the childhood production of HIT THE ROAD, GHOST! I graduated from Fountain Valley High School and from Cal State Long Beach, where I earned a degree in Business Marketing. However, my passion for moviemaking could not be ignored, which led me to start my own production company, PressPix Media, upon graduation. My first two films, AIRBAG and DISCRETION, have screened at numerous international events (2012 LA Shorts Fest, 2016 London LGBT Film Festival, and more). I am currently developing two feature-length productions--a stoner dramedy and a thriller--among other projects. Excited as I am to begin the next phase of my career, I will forever be that strange kid on the block with his dad's Handycam and a story to tell.
