My Interests

When I am not working to solve the latest mysterious bug or preparing for the latest push of code to production sites, I am filming short films and working on music videos for my musician friends. I have always had an interest in filmmaking and now that the technology is at a point where the level of entry is set so low, I have decided to follow my passions. Before I started dabbling in film, I was a photographer. I had a studio where I worked on portfolios for aspiring models and creating photographic art. I still work on various art projects, but not as much as in the past.
