Hey everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve updated the blog (I seriously need to do better) but I’m here for what seems to be my yearly update. You know I said this before but since I’m not really working with the studios anymore and working with indie films there isn’t much to really update because the films I work on take much longer to come out.
But with that said, I have two new films that I can actually talk about that I shot this year. The first one was in Hinesville/Savannah, GA called “Ben & Ara“. This was a great project and a somewhat different experience. The state of Georgia recently got the film tax incentives and man did Georgia show up for this project! They rolled out the red carpet in order for this project to even happen and even gave us an awesome wrap party. The crew involved with this project was awesome and really showed southern hospitality through the duration of this project. From the Producers (Samone Norsworthy, Joeseph Baird & Constance Ejuma) to our Director Nnegest Likkeand the rest of the crew. Everyone was really great and a joy to work with.
This project also just launched an Indiegogo page. We need to raise funds to complete post-production, which involves editing, sound, music and color correction. Without these things we don’t have a movie, and without your help, we’ll have a pretty difficult time making this dream a reality. No amount is too small so we welcome any and all donations.
And the other film, I reconnected with director Danny LaGare (“Suicide for Beginners”) in Connecticut for “Grandpa’s Psycho“. The film is a dark and gritty psychological thriller that explores one small town man’s need to purify the world of sin, one sinner at a time. His medieval and brutal cleansing process directly contradicts the devotion he has for his granddaughter. Tension builds as we discover secrets surrounding the psychotic behavior of this quaint god fearing little town.and shot what turned out to be probably my favorite movie I have ever been apart of, besides the cold temperatures. Everything just seemed to worked out artistically for this project. From what I saw from the raw images on the directors monitor, to actors and crew, it just worked. Even when it snowed, we just got rid of the snow and continued. Of course there those days that were tough but we finished and I can’t wait for you guys to see these projects.
Hey what’s going on blog world? I know it’s been forever since I uploaded a new blog but I’ve been locked out of this blog for a minute now. I don’t know how it happened but I’m back in now.
Behind the scenes on “A Love Story” in Wilmington, NC
What have I been up too? Over the past year I assisted directed a couple more independent films, “A Love Story” and “Room 105”. Both are independent projects (non studio related) so I don’t really know when they are going to come out. Indie’s tend to take longer before they hit market because one might be on the festival market for a couple of years and the other might land distribution and hit stores in a couple months. You never know but when they do come out I will update the blog and let you know when and where you can see the projects.
Hey everyone! I know its been forever since I’ve updated this blog but its kind of hard to blog about projects that haven’t come out yet. I might have to restructure my blog a bit cause it makes it look like I’m not working but I am. I’m just not doing short form work that much any more and really focusing on feature films. Meaning it’s usually a year or so before I can update my blog for projects that I’ve already worked on but anyway. I have a new movie that I worked on as the 2nd Assistant Director for the film!
Hey everyone!!! I just wanted to wish everyone a Productive Happy 2013!!!
And what an awesome way to start the new year off then with a new music video from From The Ground Up Records artist Young Dirt. The record is called “Hello”. The Video was directed by Wuz Good and we shot this video in Orlando!
Hey everyone! Sorry for the lack of updates but I’ve been a little busy with work, traveling, life, family, etc. But I’m back with a couple of updates. This first one is from the band from Fearless Records called Go Radio!!!
Hey World! Sorry for the delay on the blog but I’ve kind of been all over the place between dental surgery, work and other life events aka YOLO’ing full force so I haven’t been able to keep up with my blog as much. But anyway, while I was gone “Bigfoot” premiered on Syfy!!

This project we shoot in Seattle in January in the middle of the states biggest winter storm “in the history of a long time!!” Literally we were standing on top of ice and filming at the same time! It was crazy but it was definitely one of those projects that I will never forget. So many hurdles were thrown at us during this project, I was really amazed that we actually finished the movie.
You know a little side story… Sometimes I really think the film Gods try their hardest to hold me back and don’t want me to succeed in this industry but I will continue to have a positive vibe and will never spazz out no matter what situation is handed to me and do it with a smile. For some reason that tends to throw some people off that a 1st AD will have a positive attitude no matter how crazy a situation is but I refuse to be that AD that is yelling, cussing and being very annoying. It very non productive and I will refuse to be that guy. Maybe my style will catch on in the industry but until then I will continue to be me.
Hey world!! Long time no blog! LOL Yeah I know that was whack but check it out!

Hey world, I’m back with a music video update this time! This video is “Make It Loud” by Martha Munizzi f/ Pablo! I had a really good time at this shoot. The energy at this shoot was great! Everyone was there having lots of fun and getting the job done at the same time. Martha and Pablo brought there A game with the performances and all of the extras from the different church groups were amazing. And let me not forget about the dancers…. AWESOME! If I can remember right someone one told me they were in some type of competition or television show. Either way they would great. I didn’t even have to show them any moves…
