I was born and raised in rural Northern California, where I grew up with a love for guns, adventure, and the outdoors, and I’ve been telling stories and dreaming of being a filmmaker for as long as I can remember. I made a few short films in high school, but it wasn’t until I graduated high school and joined the military that I really had anything to say about the world.
Having grown up in a conservative Christian environment my whole life, where I was constantly told that America’s “freedoms” were defended by the military, seeing what really went on in the military and overseas was eye-opening to me. I started to feel like I was working for hte bad guys. I realized that the government had lied to me, and that they were a greater threat to our freedom than any foreigner could ever be. God worked a great change in my life through this experience, and in addition to becoming a radical libertarian, I also become a much stronger and more loving Christian.
Now, the once vapid action stories I had floating around my head have become imbued with meaning. It is my hope to create films that are equal parts exciting and thought provoking. I want to tell stories that inspire people to think about life, and society, and friendship, and, above all, God. I don’t want to make saccharine, white-washed family drivel. I want to craft gritty, dark, sweeping epics with powerful messages. The kind of films that will hopefully reach young men and adults who wouldn’t be interested in typical “Christian Film” affair.
