Summary

Filmmaker, Photographer and Social Media Consultant

I started filming and photography by picking up a camera and learning wherever I could get the information. This was in the form of online courses. Everywhere I looked they were saying that you need to tell a story with your film or in your photo, but even before that; I gravitated to telling stories as a young boy.

I would watch films, write short stories and even act out my favourite scenes from television and films. When I looked at a photo I could picture myself being there and all of the emotions that would go with it.

That is how I picture in my head at each and every photo or film shoot. Telling the story and capturing all of the emotions that I want to evoke in the audience.

You have a story to tell and I want to help tell it.

Flight Equipment Technician

In June I started my basic training which was eleven weeks long. This is where I started to learn about leadership. We had many courses each week learning about leadership. Also learning about being a leader first hand everyday during training. After I graduated from basic training I was then sent to do my combat training which was twenty-one days long.

The next stage of my military career was Flight Equipment Technician school in Pensacola, Florida. I was there for six months. Three months was waiting for my class to pick-up and the other three months was the actual schooling. I learned how to pack parachutes, life-preservers, life-rafts, etc. I graduated with high marks in my courses.

After graduation I then was stationed in Okinawa, Japan for the next two years and two months. I took leadership courses and Lance corporals course. I have taken a Six Sigma course while in Japan as well. I was a mentor to some of the more junior Marines. I was also the safety representative alternate. After my tour in Japan was over I was stationed in Jacksonville, North Carolina. I was only there for ten months before getting a Honorable Discharge.
