I’ve always been a performer. I used to act on stage when I was younger. People told me I was great. I loved it. I also play music. Guitar, piano, and harmonica. I went to film school in Vancouver, learned the basics of production, as well as how to edit film and audio. I moved to Dallas and got a job at the Studios at Las Colinas. I would take whatever production jobs came from friends and a couple that I just sort of stumbled upon. Read more>>
