In 1998 I was 10 and made a pretty decent Alien Autopsy short with my friend Omar.
We dissected his little brother. We used ketchup and his Dad's under shirts as lab coats.
Today, I can finally afford real lab coats. I'm not saying I've made it, but yeah - real ones. So.

I've been a lot of things - editor, colorist, engineer, writer, AD, AC, camera man, director, camp counselor.
I like directing the most, and editing the second most. Working at a summer camp with pretty cool, too.  

In 2010 I worked in a mail room for 3 months. I made dinosaurs out of packing tape. 
The economy had crashed and my boss was a drunk.
I was promoted twice. 

I have a history of working in live music, fashion, documentary, music video, and commercial.
I want to do more of those things, but also other things.

I think motion picture is the culmination of every true human art form -  
a collaborative effort that brings sound, color, and movement together
to transmit stirring and complex emotions
that require this specific medium
to properly translate
to our hearts
and brains. 

I can't imagine devoting my life to anything less than that. 
That's the good shit.
