If we're being honest, my passion for film started when I was 8 years old and I started making LEGO stop motion videos.
I'm now 21 years old, and I moved from my hometown of Edmond, Oklahoma to the Tampa Bay area in the summer of 2016, right before my senior year of high school.
My love for video really kicked in when my dad and I began our move across the country. I used a GoPro to document the hours we spent traveling, commuting and exploring every day. Those videos started out as mostly time lapses, but I've listened to a lot of podcasts and watched a lot of Youtube videos on film technique since then.
Although my 8-year-old self might be a little disappointed I'm not making LEGO stop motion videos anymore, I've made a lot of progress on the videography front.
I've been a freelance videographer and photographer for many local organizations, including the Tampa Bay Times, the Diocese of St. Petersburg, and many other local organizations for the past three years.
