Directing film is a new venture for him; however in the past he had a photography /video business for several years which helped him develop his skills as a director.

Director Statement

“The Trapper” is the biggest project I’ve written & directed so far

Part of my inspiration for this film has been my recent interest in the history of the Native Americans and the way the United States had become a Country.

In my younger years, having grown up in the mid-west, I actually did some hunting, fishing and trapping. So I can really relate to the main character in this film, "The Trapper."

I’m extremely proud of this film. We shot it in 2 days and with a small budget of just under $1300. And that includes paying the cast and crew.

You could say, we literally made this film for, “A Fistful of Dollars”

Hope you enjoy it.
Thanks for checking it out.
