A little about me...
Who exactly am I? This person who is self-described as the greatest mind of my, or any other, generation? To answer this we must go way, way back to a simpler time. Somewhere in the early 1990s...
You see, many, many moons ago on a dark and stormy summer late morning/early afternoon, I was brought into the world in the small, yet not so small city of Bellevue in the Great (Plains) state of Nebraska! For decades I traveled the globe following my military family from Air Force base to Air Force base acquiring the knowledge, skills, and passions you've all come to know me for today. Acting, filmmaking, juggling, and eccentricity-ing...
After globetrotting for a bit, in college, I went on to study digital filmmaking and video production which ultimately culminated into a bachelor of science degree in... digital filmmaking and video production... I was, at long last, a learned man. Sort of.
Shortly after graduating I went on to help start a small production company in the heart of downtown Las Vegas working alongside Zappos and Tony Hsieh's Downtown Project. I would then go on to work on various productions as a freelancer including Katy Perry's Waking Up in Vegas music video (Special bonus, the class ring in that video is my actual high school class ring! Which they lost... twice. Don't worry, I got it back. Albeit covered in duct tape so they could fit it on Katy's – very slender –fingers.), Fox's American Idol, an international social media marketing campaign for some famous Hollywood brothers that shall remain nameless for NDA purposes, and a slew of local productions from music videos to reality TV show pilots and everything in between.
Most recently, I've stepped out from behind the camera and editing bay to try my hand at acting. I just hit my year anniversary acting with Bard at the Bar in Las Vegas playing characters like Malcolm from Macbeth, Lysander from A Midsummer Night's Dream, Ben (Bianca) from Taming of the Shrew, and Benedick from Much Ado About Nothing.
There you have it.
