I use alternative techniques to create ethereal worlds that take audiences out of their comfort zones. In order to make my films, I look deep into myself in the hope that they inspire others to do the same.
I was born in 1993 in Manchester Connecticut to a video store manager and a machinist. I attended school at University of Vermont where I earned a Bachelor's in Studio Art and Film and Television Studies. I currently work as a freelance producer of short videos, advertisements and music videos in the Bay Area, California.

My films are made with alternative styles and methods such as: hand-developed film, shooting on old home movie cameras like my Bolex, shooting completely in black and white, using corrupted files, doing time lapse animations by hand and incorporating archival footage into my films.
In 2014, my professor gifted Werner Herzog a loaded super 8 camera with the request that he shoot it and send the roll back to us to use the footage. He agreed and gifted it to us with a set of guidelines for a project using the footage including that it must be titled "Where's Da Party At?" You can find an article about it here: http://www.uvm.edu/~uvmpr/?Page=news&storyID=17846&category=ucommhpfeatures
"There is nothing wrong with spending a night in jail if it means getting the shot you need."
