Hello, I'm a director and filmmaker with North Carolina roots based in Los Angeles.  My first job after film school was as a virtual reality technician on a navigable 3D reconstruction of the Caves of the Thousand Buddhas in Duanhuang, China.  I then moved into post at Miramax as an assistant to two-time Oscar winner Pietro Scalia.  From 2010-2015, I was a producer-editor at the NFL, where I created the broadcast animated series The Rookie Handbook, which aired as an intro to Thursday Night Football.  In 2015, I co-founded Effie Studios, a global production company that combines virtual, motion design and live-action production to innovate new ways of storytelling.
