I love to create, I've got a keen interest in fixing things too, and I love traveling and making new friends along the way. I'm a polymath and always interested in learning new things. I like to relax and have fun just like the next guy, but nothing beats the feeling of accomplishment when you finish a project or create something you can be proud of.
I teach chess, play piano and always wanted to learn to sing and dance. I build robots, Captain a team on a pool league, make films, YouTube videos, and broadcast on YouNow. I travel every year to California, New York, Florida, DC, and Amsterdam for social media conventions. I play Pokémon GO. I repair my own vehicle while at the same time learning how to repair it.
I'm working on learning these languages in this order: Japanese, Spanish, French, German
My passion is filmmaking and I've been making videos since 1998 on VHS.
My first camera was an X10 Security camera, which I wired up to a VCR to record my videos. I took a video/audio and lighting class in High School which inspired me to invest in an actual video camera. I saved up $200 and bought the RCA CC4352 Full-Size VHS Camcorder, which was a shoulder mount camera. I would film improv comedy skits and commercials and show them to my friends and family. I had been writing short stories for many years before this but I didn't start writing script for screen until college when I went to film school.
Growing up I also played around with stop-motion animation using the LEGO Vision Command camera. As you may know, stop-motion is a lot of work so my stop-motion videos were no longer than a minute or two and took hours to make.
When YouTube came out I was deployed overseas. When I came back to the states in December 2007, my brother told me about it and I started my channel where I uploaded my old videos from VHS. Since then I've immersed myself in the YouTube community and made many more videos.
I'm attending the New York Film Academy for my MFA in Filmmaking.
