Reading C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien taught me that the best stories don’t describe reality—they build upon its many layers. I’ve always been drawn to the power of narrative to uncover truths we've forgotten and yet to discover. As Lewis would say: "These things—the beauty, the memory of our own past—are good images of what we really desire; but if they are mistaken for the thing itself, they turn into dumb idols, breaking the hearts of their worshipers. For they are not the thing itself; they are only the scent of a flower we have not found, the echo of a tune we have not heard, news from a country we have never yet visited.”
I like to work at the intersection of art and technology, using today’s tools to make a client’s vision come to life. As an aspiring filmmaker and director, I don’t see style as an end in itself, but as the result of a story told well; stories that take you into the expanse of the unknown, like Nolan's Interstellar, or the way that TV can flesh out a story over time like BBC's Doctor Who or SyFy's adaptation of the film 12 Monkeys
I’ve traveled yet have an intense sense of wanderlust, but I am happy to call Kentucky home for now. I’ve been inspired by artists who made the most of the gifts they had, who did their best work and fearlessly shared it with the world despite challenges. I love engaging in theological conversations in coffee shops and finding harmony within the synthesis of Imagination and Reason. In addition to that, I enjoy working in IT and exercising my gifts in the digital realm.
