Meet the Founder

Whoa, how did you end up here? Never mind. Here’s my story.

Whenever people ask me what inspired me to became a filmmaker,

Me, directing on the set of “Waldo”

I wonder if I should hold off on telling them the truth to avoid the strange stares.

No, I don’t have an epic tale of meeting Spielberg and how he chewed on a handkerchief while giving me his secrets to filmmaking. Instead, dissecting a fetal pig or growing bacteria in a Petri dish were the highlights of my childhood as I dove head first into studying to become a marine biologist.  In my mind, I was set on  swimming with Tiger Sharks for the rest of eternity. Strange stares.

My high school’s theatre program was my other passion. As a way to avoid extending my days in band, I signed up for Drama for my first year of high school. Best accidental decision ever.

Three years later, I was accepted into UCSC for Marine Biology and SCAD for film and television. I decided to say goodbye to my passion for science and took a chance on film.

“Maybe I should’ve stuck with acting” was my initial thought after taking my first film class.  Yeah, I had no idea what I was doing. I thought I had made a mistake.

And then I found my niche.

How exactly does someone accidentally make a music video, you might ask. I don’t know,that’s how I discovered my niche in the film/television industry. After my next attempt at making a music video, my own music video for the One Republic song “Stop and Stare”, I knew I had chosen the right career path.

So, here I am.  And here you are. Why should I be your music video director?
For me, creating a music video is a synesthetic process.  Hearing a song, planning out every second, every camera movement, every lighting setup, and every design aspect of the music video. I realize I had chosen the right profession after all. So this is how far I’ve gotten. I have my own production company,started a freelance writing biz, and have plenty more ideas brewing in my noggin.
