At the age of 17, I got my first “big break” as a production assistant on a straight-to-video action flick starring the incorrigible Mickey Rourke. From there, I cut my teeth assisting on popular Emmy Award Winning Shows like American Idol, The Amazing Race and with the original fab five on Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.
At 25 years old, I was an integral part in the live broadcast of the Q-Television Network (QTN), the world’s first LGBTQ+ cable network. I produced On-Q-Live, an internationally syndicated variety show that featured queer focused news, entertainment and sports. With that, I helped write content for the first openly trans sports reporter in the United States. To this day, I consider my experience at QTN as one of my greatest accomplishments. We made broadcast history - I think that's pretty cool.
After the repeal of DOMA and during the time of the “gay debate”, I committed myself to non-profit work, social justice and higher education. I served as a video producer for Soulforce, a non-violent direct action organization. I produced for ACPA - College Student Educators International in Washington, DC and the O4U Strategic Initiatives team, helping connect high achieving, LGBTQ students with leading corporations such as Google, Facebook, Space X, Cisco and Olgilvy.
Presently, I have returned to further my true passion of storytelling. Wanting to focus on LGBTQ+ characters and storylines, I am again committed to doing so in uncharted genres like horror, science fiction and fantasy. I’ve begun with the short film Momma, a quasi-dystopian, queer neon western horror, that features fresh new characters and disgusting practical effects that are sure to command the audience’s attention.
