I'm a filmmaker and I'm from LA. I started making movies in high school and immediately ran with it because it was the coolest thing I had ever done. Not too long after that, I realized how important and how impactful filmmaking is to us all and decided to hone the craft to spread my own messages, thoughts, and world views.
