I was raised in Franklin, Tenn. and have spent more than half my life writing and shooting films.
In the eighth grade, I wrote and directed my first film. In high school, I wrote a short that was recognized
by the Director’s Guild of America, directed a one-act stage play, and could always be found behind a camera
catching moments with my friends.
At Western Kentucky University, I decided to pursue a degree in creative writing with a minor in production.
That's where I discovered a love of editing and directing. I made two music videos for local bands and six short
films--three of which won awards at the Western Kentucky Film Festival in 2000 and 2001.
Following a year of working on live television and independent films in Tennessee and Kentucky, I was off to Southern California.
I received my MFA in Film Production from Chapman University in Orange, Calif.
After finishing school, I worked in post-production at various production houses in LA and Orange County including
Magical Elves, the company behind TOP CHEF. Feeling the need to return to my Southern roots, I moved back to Tennessee
where I work as a freelance video editor and writer as well as a part-time film instructor in Nashville.
From documentaries to short films, from music videos to business promos--I've done all kinds of work to
tell a multitude of stories.
