I was born in Corpus Christi, Texas but grew up in Houston, Texas. It was in 1998 I took the leap and move to Los Angeles, Ca., and that's where I started out as a still photographer on film sets. I have never been on a film set and I needed to have a real film set experience, working on student films and countless amateur films. I didn't care as long as that I was on a film set, I was happy.
After a year of working for free on film sets from set photographer, boom operator, PA, and grip department. I produced my first short film "5150", a wanna-be Stanley Kubrick take on his 2001. After that, I still continued freelancing in film sets and submitted "5150" to every film festival in America.
In 2001, I made a second attempt at producing & directing "The Barista" and realized I needed to find a genre. Every legendary or successful film director has a genre and they stick to it.
In 2003, I made "Detective Grgich" an ego time bomb detective that has no moral principles or ethics to do his job. And that's when I found my genre. Dramatic and story driven.
I made another Grgich short "Suspended Homicide" in 2004 and I can say this short is my real first short film attempt as a professional producer & director. Unfortunately, the sound wasn't tip-top, making its only glitch in the film. "Suspended Homicide" is in the film noir era, shot in black & white shadowy shots, which made "Suspended Homicide" is my most proud project.
I went on to attend Culinary school in Austin, Texas in 2005 - 2007 and continued to do kitchen work for the next 12 years. I miss working in production and being on a film set and in 2012 I have written my first full-length screenplay "corpus FUSION" and end up writing three more full-length screenplays "Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry", "JASONLAND", and Silent Motive".
Today, 2019 I'm a freelance photographer and set to shoot my next short film in the horror genre this time.
