I got my start producing films during my undergraduate Media Arts program at James Madison University. My first documentary, Won’t Pipe Down, presents a David versus Goliath battle between the residents of Nelson County, Virginia and the Dominion Power company. This short film has won numerous national awards.
In 2015, I started Black Match Productions with Daniel McNew. With Black Match, we were able to raise crowdfunding money for the post-production of the film. We also produced a promotional video for Nelson County tourism. I have continued producing and branched out to directing in pursuing my Masters in Film Directing at the University of Edinburgh. Through the university, I am currently directing and producing a short documentary, A Year For Us, that follows a single mother who sacrificed her conventional life to travel the world with her 7 year old daughter. I am working on producing another short film called, To Be A Torero, a film by Inma de Reyes. This film is about a young Spanish boy and his dream to become a professional bullfighter. Stay tuned!
My interests outside of filmmaking include breakdancing, traveling and helping my family with their distillery in Afton, Virginia. Shameless shoutout to Silverback Distillery.
