Driven, determined, focused
Most important thing I’ve learned so far in my major:
Every moment in life holds a story. As a filmmaker, it's up to me to figure out how to tell it.
Can’t live without:
Collaborating with other passionate filmmakers. You can’t make a great film alone.
I’m most proud of:
My ability to craft a film to communicate a specific story or mood
Favorite place at DePaul:
Digital Cinema lighting stage
Favorite academic project:
Working as collaborating director, producer and editor on the student film, L’espoir
“If you want something, nothing is impossible” – Jean-Louis Blondeau, from the film Man on Wire
Best place to study on campus:
As long as I have a camera, I can study anywhere.
Thin crust or deep dish?
Deep dish. Pequod’s Pizza, anyone?
Besides filming, I enjoy running, cycling and swimming. I have to relieve my stress somehow!
