On the Screen

When I was in college, I started acting in local no-budget "indie" films in North Carolina.  The first one was in a UNC-TV documentary, Shortcuts to Justice, where I played a tough ATF agent that bent the rules to bust bootleggers.  I started helping on crews and worked my way up from PA to Producer.

Fifteen years later, I still love making documentaries, wearing multiple hats, and even hopping in front of the camera every now and then. 

Some of the things I'm most proud of as a filmmaker:

  • selling my first feature film to RedBull TV

  • winning "Best of the Fest" at the Hip Hop Film Festival

  • 9x Telly Award winner

  • 2x Emmy nominee

  • 2x Sharecare Award nominee
