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, which I will be finishing in August 2017.
My interests outside of filmmaking include breakdancing, traveling and helping my family with their distillery in Afton, Virginia. Check it out! Silverback Distillery
