I’m an East Bay Area native who spent most of my life as a musician. I decided to write my first screenplay in 2018 when I turned 28. Until that point, I never seriously considered writing. My band and my drums were my whole world until I started directing and producing our own music videos. This gave me the creative fulfillment I never knew I was looking for. As I started making more videos with story lines, I realized writing was where my true joy came from. I set a goal, I’d spend one year not making any music videos and devoting myself to writing a screenplay, as well as educating myself on the craft. This lead me on the journey to write and direct my first short film.
