My first introduction to filmmaking was figuring out how to make my little brother disappear and reappear using a primitive, in-camera jump-cut with my dad's VHS camera for our Matrix-style fan film. Years later, while attending NC State, I took an intro to film course on a whim. After the first class, I quickly switched my biology major to film studies and haven't looked back since.
My work has been recognized by the American Advertising awards, the Global Trend Triumph awards, and several film festivals. I have been fortunate to see projects go from concept to finish, interacting with clients throughout the entire process. My projects ranges from commercial video with big tech such as Red Hat, Lenovo, Cisco, and Intel to work on feature films premiering at the Tribeca International Film festival and reality TV on national networks.
I'm passionate about sci-fi films, running, the issue of climate change, and representation of people of color in media. I currently work as an art director of video on Red Hat's creative agency in Raleigh and I run Negative Split Films as a platform for narrative short films shot in North Carolina.
