How I Got Here

 

Born in January 1993, Tucson, Arizona. I have loved the development of entertaining and educational media. I wanted to do anything and everything that could push entertainment and education to the next level. My passion started with wanting to be a Country Music & 80's Style Rock Star. This passion eventually leads to learning several different musical instruments and understanding Audio Engineering leading to managing and engineering audio for live events, recording and performing with different artists, bands, and church teams.

The passion for creativity lead to me experimenting in the photography world and starting to take photographs after receiving a starter digital camera as a gift. Since then I have had the opportunity to be the photographer for different events, weddings, as well as model shoots, and behind the scenes photography.

With the same camera and a passion for the Science Fiction ideas of Lightsabers and laser guns, I took my desire to learn more and experimented in having two individuals pretend que sticks were lightsabers and hit each other back and forth with them so he could apply lightsaber effects from a free software found on the internet. This lead to my passion for motion pictures and pursuing learning skills in the overall production industry including visual effects, compositing, color grading/correction and working for live events, sporting events, and overall production.
