I am a filmmaker and photographer originally from Illinois. My films typically explore social justice and historical themes. Nothing brings me greater joy than having a camera in my hands and collaborating with others. In 2021, I graduated from Loyola Marymount University's Film and Television Production MFA program. I currently teach Film Production at Penn State University. When I am not working you can usually find me watching sports, perusing a bookstore, visiting a museum, or ordering coffee.
