     I started learning screenwriting in 1995.  Back then, the Internet was just getting started.  There was not much information out there.  For several years, I bought and read every book book about screenwriting sold at the local Barnes & Noble.  Soon, I expanded to reading books on lighting and production.

     In the early 2000s, I would drive to Atlanta once a month to attend the meeting of the IMAGE Film and Video group.  I attended numerous out-of-town film industry workshops in Atlanta, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.

     In 2005, I was one of the founding members of Southeastern Filmmakers, a community group dedicated to individuals learning the art and craft of independent filmmaking.  In the decade that followed I've worked on a variety of productions, including some micro-budget indie features.  I've had opportuinites to be the Director of Photography on productions with name actors.

     I 2015, I joined the board of directors of the Augusta Film Office.  Our mission is to bring industry low-budget productions to our area.

Please enjoy looking at my work on this page.  I am available for consultations and set work at the convience of my full time job as the Broadcasting and Film Instructor at the Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School.
