I always loved this statement made by Quentin Tarantino, "You don't have to know how to make a movie. If you truly love cinema with all your heart and with enough passion, you can't help but make a good movie."
I’m a native from Bridgeport, CT. I went to college in Atlanta, GA in 2002. I attended Clark Atlanta University for 2 years and continued my education and graduated with a BA in Media Production from American InterContinental University in 2006.
After graduation, I tried to get into filmmaking while looking for a job to pay bills. I’ve worked on a couple of music video sets as a cable grip but that is as far as it went. Being in Atlanta at the time, the industry was not really looking for little experience from people.
I posted my resume in all 50 states and got lucky with getting a full time job at A&E Television Networks in Stamford, CT as a Digital Encoder in 2007. I got promoted to Associate Producer and then Digital Video Producer within 2 years and was working this position until 2016. At this time I decided to go for another career, which is my current career. I’m a Firefighter for my city of Bridgeport, CT and love this job.
During the pandemic, a couple of close family members tested positive for COVID-19 and passed away. Having close contact with them, made me quarantine for 14 days. During my quarantine, I was separated from my 2 children and my girlfriend. All I had close to me were books to read, my phone to video chat, movies to stream and my laptop. I would read for a few hours then watch movies and my passion for trying to write again came around and I began to write and create ideas for feature films.
