What are you passionate about? My passion is filmmaking/storytelling. I love telling stories and experiencing the emotional journeys the can take you on.

What is your favorite class (or classes) at SLCC? Favorite class has to currently be Cinematography because it’s helping me progress down the path of become a filmmaker

Which actor/actress would play you in your life movie? The best actor to play me would be James Franco. Not only do we look similar I think he could deliver a performance that would express my life very well

Where do you see yourself in five years? My hope is that is five years I’ll be working a film projects. Hopefully that will be a major motion picture, but if not I know I will be making my own films.

Something about you that other people would be surprised to know: A surprising fact is growing up four brothers and no sisters, I didn’t have a rowdy family. It was pretty calm.
