Films & Documentaries


I know it sounds cliché, but filmmaking is a true passion of mine. I shot my first film back in 2016 and the filmmaking bug bit me hard. Since then, I've invested in thousands of dollars in movie-making gear, studied the craft extensively, and film whenever I can get my hands on a good new script.  Many times I film without a script just to get out and practice the craft.
