Teaching since:

I'm a professional film director, cinematographer, and photographer and have been teaching creatives full-time on a popular channel with over 3 million views. I graduated from the prestigious UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television with a BA in digital narrative production. I have taught at all levels from absolute novice to MFA-level classes.

My work has screened at several Oscar-qualifying film festivals and has screened at some of LA's most popular venues, such as the TCL Chinese Theatre, LA Live, the James Bridges Theater, and more. I have helped many people start their careers in entertainment and have helped many creatives make films that have screened at some of the world's best known film festivals.

I have a huge passion for teaching and mentoring creatives. Whether you want to learn how to operate a camera, write your first script, learn the fundamentals of acting, or some combination of those three, I will tailor a focused, customized, hands-on curriculum for you so that you can grow as a creative! In addition to covering creative techniques, I also provide career coaching, resume-building, helping provide the tools needed to go onto sets, and other practical lessons.
