I graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2008 from the University of Miami School of Communications with a double major in Motion Pictures and Philosophy. At UM, I directed my first documentary, "Miami Noir: The Arthur E. Teele Story."
In December 2008, I was awarded a $750,000 grant from the John S. & James L. Knight Foundation through it's Knight Arts Challenge. With the grant, I co-founded the Miami World Cinema Center, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the South Florida film industry.
In late 2009, I joined Alfred Spellman, Billy Corben and David Cypkin at rakontur where I edited "Limelight," "Dawg Fight," "ESPN's Collision Course: The Murder of Don Aronow" and "VH1's The Tanning of America: One Nation Under Hip-Hop." In October 2013, I joined friend Jorge Valdes-Iga and the creative agency VALDES-IGA, where I edited and produced luxury brand videos for clients including Ralph Lauren and Clarisonic.
I enjoy running, and I recently completed my second half marathon. I grew up in Cape May Point, NJ (Exit 0) and Sarasota, FL. I'm a New York Yankee, Miami Heat and Miami Dolphin fan. I follow all University of Miami sports and give a little love to the Ohio State Buckeyes...it's a family thing. I was once a Florida Marlins fan (yes, I said Florida on purpose). I like hip-hop, rock and jazz. I don't do techno or country.
