Filmmaker

Iโ€™m an upliftingly dark daydreamer who evolved from the beautiful dark green forests of Western Kentucky, USA. The amazing road of life has brought me to Austin, Texas where I reside with my beautiful wife and kids.

I am the fallout of two star crossed lovers stranded alone in a mysterious battlefield nestled within a dark forest converging by a vicious enemy that has traveled the vast reaches of space in pursuit of galactic domination.

I make films, compose film music and conjure the arts.

I hope my work resonates with you.
