At age 9, the Blockbuster in my hometown closed down and I remember going for the liquidity sale. I came home with countless DVDs and a massive poster of the 100 most famous movie quotes of all time. At that point, I did not know I wanted to make films. But I suppose it should have been evident when I became obsessed with watching every film on the poster. Next thing you know I was sitting on the couch waiting for Scarlet O’Hara to say, “Frankly, my dear I don’t give a damn.”
I guess I was always intrigued by disobedient women. Growing up I never wanted to say that I wanted to be a filmmaker because that was a pipe dream. I went through a doctor phase and a lawyer phase like any good liberal arts educated American student. However, during college I realized that despite my best efforts I could not give up the arts. I graduated with a degree in Political Science and Photography. Once I graduated and realized pursuing life as a photographer was a watered-down version of my true dream to be a filmmaker,
I shifted gears.
Now completing my time at LFS, I have found my love for directing and producing. I love having a hand in every aspect of any film I am a part of, which is why I am most often drawn to these two roles.
