Filmmaking & Video Production

I’m a Spring Branch graduate and award-winning screenwriter and director. Born and raised in Texas, I earned my Bachelors of Science in Filmmaking from The University of Texas at Austin, my Masters in Education from The University of Texas at Arlington and am currently obtaining my Doctorate in Educational Leadership through The University of Houston.

I enjoy sharing my love of filmmaking and photography with our students at The Guthrie Center. Throughout my career, I worked on a wide range of projects from music videos to documentaries and from short films to commercials.

In addition to having worked for 20th Century Fox, I have had my work screened at various film festivals as well as the Houston Museum of Fine Arts. I’m also an Adjunct Professor at Houston Community College teaching classes such as RTVB 1329, FLMC 2333, FLMC 1300, FLMC 2344, and PHTC 1311.
