In my 30 long years of life, I have been a Babysitter, a Farmer, a Chef, an Apprentice Sub-Contractor, a General Laborer, a Solar Engineer, a Janitor, a Security Guard/Fire Marshal, a Student, and a Teachers Assistant. (there's more but I don't want to bore you lol) 

I have been called a Jack of all trades but a master of none, I would have to agree except for one thing and that's my passion for film... 

For as long as I can remember, I have loved film. For me it was an escape from a harsh reality where you could feel as if you were a part of the action, seeing that hero struggle, overcoming the overwhelming odds that are stacked against them, and going on to win the day. Seeing these types of things gave me inspiration, hope, strength, and the motivation to keep pushing forward to be the hero of my own story.

So now after all the films I have watched, enjoyed, and got lost in, I'm trying to give back by helping filmmakers get the chance to make their passion project. In doing so perhaps I am giving another child that escape and passion I had as a child.
