About me

I’m a filmmaker based in Ann Arbor, Michigan (Go Blue!). I grew up being the kid that thought he was the funniest person in the world, but no one could appreciate his humor (yes, I did laugh at my own jokes and I still do). I made my first film as an “easy” alternative to poster boards in a middle school history class, but the most bizarre thing had happened - For the first time in my life I had made people genuinely laugh.

Whether I’m the funniest person in the world or not might be arguable, but what I realized was that it only took one film to get everyone to change their minds about my humor, regardless of the countless bad jokes I had said in the past.

I believe that film is the most powerful tool for a brand. The main concept of film is to show rather than tell which helps an individual recognize the authenticity and humanity in a business. I make films to influence others to think and see the world differently.
