Awesome 48HFP News! August 19, 2015 - Back in June I did the Baltimore 48-Hour Film Project with Team Citra, a team I had worked with on 48HFPs in Baltimore and Washington over the past few years.

Awesome Festival News! July 12, 2015 - The end of June/beginning of July was a bit of a roller coaster for me. First, I met with a NY agent and she decided to add me to her freelance clients.

Almost Done! April 9, 2015 - My short film, “Cleaning Up” is almost done! Principal photography was wrapped last week, and we have already got a rough cut together to send to the composer.
