Education
UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA SANTA CRUZ – Santa Cruz, CA 

Bachelor of Arts in Politics

Yes, I am a Banana Slug from Uncle Charlie’s Summer Camp.  I had planned to Double Major in Film and Politics with the intention of creating documentaries and cerebral film.  However, I soon discovered that it would be wiser for me to concentrate on hard academics since I was mostly watching movies in film classes.  I received a BA in Politics with an emphasis in Political Theory & American Politics.  This just marked another step in my journey through social justice and contributing to the world community. Having a scholarly interest in both the Arts and the Social Sciences not only gives my projects characteristics of beauty but also introspection.

COLUMBIA COLLEGE HOLLYWOOD – Tarzana, CA

Directing, Cinematography, Editing

I attended classes here for a few quarters hoping to learn what I could not at UCSC: the hands-on production process.  To my dismay, I left with a hopeless view of mainstream media and a pretty big hole in my pocket.  I began working unpaid Internships for over a year gaining decent experience though never landing a job in the ‘biz’.  I then embarked on my freelance journey landing gigs from development to post; more often then not seeing a project from its inception to its full completion.
