What you’re passionate about
I love seeing things in a new way. Whether that's manipulating vinyl records to scratch new sounds with the art of turntablism or trying to juggle different types of objects in the air. I like to approach situations and see them in a new way and try new solutions in everything I do.  

Favorite artist
My first semester at Flagler College, I saw The Royal Tenenbaums at the local theater. I had never seen a film with such amazing art direction, remarkable storyline and attention to detail. I immediately went to my local Blockbuster Video and rented Wes Anderson’s previous films Bottle Rocket and Rushmore and became a fan. My favorite Wes Anderson film is The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. It combines comedy, art, story and cinema in a remarkable way. Anderson’s skill is in his planning and execution of his films. His attention to detail and creating new worlds in his films is something I admire and strive to put into every project I produce.  

Favorite place you've traveled to
Growing up I was fortunate to travel to amazing destinations. I remember spending a month living in Wales and a trip to the islands of Hawaii. I don’t necessarily have a favorite place to visit but try to make each new destination a unique experience full of new adventures.
