I started my journey in video production back in high school, where I joined the video club. It was there that I first picked up a camera and discovered my deep-seated passion for the world of video production.
After high school, I took a different path and decided to serve in the military. I took a year off from school to undergo basic training and military police school. It was a transformative experience that instilled discipline and a sense of duty in me.
Once my military training was complete, I decided to pursue my undergraduate education at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. However, my initial plan to study music took an unexpected turn when I failed my music audition. Uncertain about my future, I stumbled upon the Communications Media program at IUP and realized that video production could be my calling.
I immersed myself in this newfound passion, and it wasn't long before I graduated with a Bachelor's in Communications Media with a specialization in TV and video production. In 2010, I began my professional journey as a wedding videographer. With each wedding, I honed my skills and expanded my expertise.
During this time, I also had the opportunity to work as an intern at Cut 'N' Run Productions in Pittsburgh, PA, where I gained valuable experience shooting and editing a diverse range of videos.
But my thirst for knowledge and growth didn't stop there. I continued my education and completed my Master's in Adult Education and Community Technology at IUP. This academic achievement provided me with a deeper understanding of the art of storytelling through video.
In 2015, I embarked on a new adventure by shooting my first film for a 48-hour film project. It was a pivotal moment that ignited my love for filmmaking and visual storytelling.
Over the years, I had the privilege of working on various projects, including music videos, training videos, commercials, and narrative films. With each project, I expanded my skill set and further nurtured my passion for filmmaking.
In 2017, I took a significant step and founded my own horror film production company, Phantom6Productions. This venture allowed me to explore new creative horizons and produce thrilling horror films.
Today, I continue to grow my skills and expand my portfolio, all while balancing a full-time job. My work includes shooting films, horror projects, music videos, events, and training videos. My ultimate goal is to transition into a full-time filmmaker and content creator, bringing the visions of directors to life with creativity, expertise, and dedication.
