A filmmaker with a focus on writing, directing, and editing. I thrive on storytelling and collaboration. There is no greater reward than to see something through from its inception to its completion. An interest in movies from a young age helped to provide the storytelling and narrative drive. The education and subsequent work after graduation helped provide the importance of technical knowledge as well as collaboration. Since 2012, I have gained valuable experiences and achieved many successes in the areas of directing and editing. My work as an editor has included short films, music videos, short form documentary material, and online content. Many of these projects have utilized different camera workflows and have ranged from 5-60 minutes in length. As a director, I've worked with budgets ranging from $2,000-$24,000. I have also worked with crews ranging from the size of five to twenty people, based on the needs of the production. The short films I directed have garnered film festival recognition as well as press recognition. The short film "The Gun Equation" has aired on ShortsHD, the Short Film Channel and is currently available for streaming on OPPRIME.tv. "A Missed Connection," the latest film I wrote and directed, is being submitted to film festivals worldwide. I have experience working with the Adobe Creative Cloud, Avid Media Composer, and Final Cut. I am known as a versatile contributor with experience in all core camera and editing functions. Additionally, I am collaborative, passionate, and eager to make a positive difference in any team environment. This is work that I love which is why I continue to do what I do. I am currently interested in full-time video editing and directing work. Reels and other samples can be viewed below.

About Film Directors

Film directors are responsible for interpreting a script or brief into a finished film. They either write the script or take on an early draft from a client, and have to come up with an artistic vision and work out how to achieve it. They are responsible for a film's artistic and commercial success or failure. High quality video content can supercharge your business's video marketing strategy, growing your branding. Search engines also give high priority to video content

Film directors manage all creative decisions of how a film is made, monitoring and communicating with the camera, sound, lighting, design and special effects departments. They oversee everything from the castings, rehearsals through to pre-production, editing and finalising the film.

Whether it's an explainer video, music video or short film, directors on Twine can help turn your script, brief or concept into a professional production. They'll bring polish to the filming that can make you stand out out from the competition.
