About Me

Throughout my entire life, I have always had the motivation to go after and try new things. I’ve fallen in love with many different creative avenues, but my passion is filmmaking. At the age of 10, I was introduced to post-production, where I taught myself the art of video editing. The desire to learn something new and grow in this field, led me to the opportunities of attending Grammy Camp in Los Angeles and New York, and a nomination to attend an Envision Academic Summer Camp – “National Youth Leadership Forum: Digital Media, Film, and Journalism”, which partnered with the New York Film Academy (NYFA). These camps not only gave me a powerful amount of new knowledge in these fields, but introduced me to the film school, NYFA Los Angeles, where I graduated with Honors, Summa Cum Laude, this Fall 2020.

Pursuing filmmaking as both my passion and career, I am a Content Creator and Influencer, where I share my ideas and creations to the world through Social Media platforms. I create Longboard Freestyle YouTube videos, along with Instagram and TikTok video snippets, where I post my progression on the sport and video blog my entire journey, teaching and inspiring a community of other boarders. The honors and sponsorships I have received, whilst participating in-front and behind the camera in various music videos, brand deals, and commercials, through the art of this sport along with filmmaking, has given me opportunities of a life time, teaching me the importance of collaboration and having a positive mindset on life. There is endless information to learn and endless people to meet, and I can’t wait for what’s to come.
