hello,

When I was still young enough to wet the bed I toured as a theatre actor, but got sick of it and ran away to join the circus when I was 9. I traveled to festivals in and around Manitoba selling circus supplies before finally crawling back home at the age of 12.

After a few years of working as an architectural photographer and making (terrible) short films I figured I was ready to go for a little funding, and applied to the Emerging Filmmaker Pitch Contest.

I was the youngest person to win that award, I know because I lied about my age to get in. That same year I was Production Coordinator of my first studio funded feature, managed to not commit fraud while applying for my first tax credit, and and earned the nickname Robocop from the First AD of Narcos.

Since then I've screened at several festivals, directed content for Shaw TV, and been voted as Winnipeg's favourite local filmmaker.

My love of telling stories drives my undeniable work ethic, and with more ideas than time I look forward to a fast paced future in the arts. If you'd like to take a look at my full CV, give me a shout on the contact page.
