A filmmaker working in both narrative and documentary modes, my films have focused on subjects involving youth identity, LGBT issues, and family dynamics, and have been screened in over 60 domestic and international film festivals.

An alum of MTSU's Recording Industry program, I continued my education at San Francisco State University, earning an MFA in Cinema in 2004. While living in the San Francisco Bay Area, I worked as a sound and picture editor for industry leaders such as ESPN, Tippett Studio (character animation and visual effects), Berkeley Sound Artists, Zoetrope-Aubry Productions, Tollin-Robbins Productions (creators of �Smallville�), Disney/Touchstone Pictures and Lakeshore Entertainment. Films and television shows I've worked on include: Casanova (Dir. Lasse Hallstrom), Marie Antoinette (Dir. Sofia Coppola), Feast of Love (Dir. Robert Benton), Enchanted, Spiderwick Chronicles, Bonds on Bonds (reality TV series), and the Sundance award-winning documentary The Devil and Daniel Johnston.

I continue to work as a freelance video producer and editor in Nashville, TN, through my production company, Green Scoot Films (www.greenscootfilms.com). I'm currently producing a feature documentary about marriage equality in the South, and am passionate about producing the next generation of socially-responsible media makers here at MTSU.

I look forward to having you in my classes!
