My drive, my aspirations, and my future lie in film and television production, and I've been making short films regularly since high school. I worked in my high school's TV Media program under the wing of my teacher and mentor, John Dalton ('JD' or 'Dalty' for short). Since then, I moved to Southern California and worked in the film production program at Santa Barbara City College. I've made narrative films and documentaries implementing the skills I've accrued from my coursework, and constantly strive to get better with the help of my talented network of friends and associates.
I've recently transferred to Laney College in Oakland where I continue my technical training and expanding my network.
Once I graduate, I'm going to work in television to hone my skills and expand my body of work. I'm currently involved In Laney College's film program and plan to transfer to SFSU.

“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!”

I work hard, I think hard, and I keep pushing. I don't have any choice but to succeed.
