I've wanted to be involved with film making ever since my brother put a camera in my hand and made me follow him and his friends skateboarding. Since then, I took a directing course in 6th grade under Spyder Alton, a great influence on my career. I was the only one in his class at the time. High school was the first time I ever directed people to act, and I loved it. It changed my life forever. Up until that point, I only wanted to act. That was the focal point of the shift in careers for me. Since then, I went on to teaching gymnastics for over 10 years (ages 1 - 60 and Beginner - Elite), but in my heart I wanted to be involved in film. Now, I am working on many different projects in film, from Production Assistant to Director. I said if it took five or 50 years I would make it in this business, and I meant it.
