I am an award winning film Director. I write, direct, shoot, and edit video. The film "The Farm," written by Rocky Karlage and made by Ghost Walk Productions is the film I directed, shot, and edited which won "Best Horror Short" at the 2012 Indie Gathering International Film Festival. It was also an Official Selection at 8 other festivals and is currently in distribution through Continuum Motion Pictures. I am currently shooting a documentary feature to be released in 2016 and developing my own documentary to be shot this winter, as well as a comedy feature to be shot in 2016.
