My self-summary
The number one, most important thing that someone must know about me is that I believe this is one of the truest statements ever made: "Blessed is the man...(who's)...desire is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates both day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers. The wicked are not so, but are like chaff that the wind drives away." And I believe that these are two more very true statements as well, #1: "He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord."(Prv. 18:22) & #2: "Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised." (Prv. 31:30) I am a man who is learning every day about the delight that the Law of God brings to a man who seeks it first and foremost above anything else in his life. I am a man, which means I have a man's desires. And here is where I add a third statement I find to be true as well: "Then the Lord God said, 'It is not good for man to be alone'..." (Gen. 2:18a). I don't want to be alone and if I am a man who"delights in the Law of the Lord" then I should wish to have a helper who "fears the Lord" as well. Basically, all I'm trying to say is...I'm a Christian.

I graduated in 2013 from AASU in Savannah, GA (my hometown) with a degree in theatre, focused in directing. I love film and directing it would be my career of choice. The reason why I attended Armstrong and got a theater degree but not SCAD where I could get a film degree is twofold. #1: I am poor and do not wish to go into debt to get training in the use of equipment without connections, and #2: I wanted to learn how to direct ACTORS not just tech people, which is wha I feel like most film directors end up focusing on, and instead neglect the most important part of portraying human experiences in life: HUMANS. Again, Christ is my first passion and while film is my career of choice, I enjoy giving Him glory most so therefore I want to create films that honor God and try to portray His glory as best as is humanly possible. But, I am not a fan of making cheesy, "Facing the Giants," type movies. I want movies that depict the reality of what it means to follow Christ. Meaning that, even if you start obeying him, things aren't necessarily going to start working out for you. You're not gonna get a new truck, your football team doesn't win the championship, and God does not open your barren wife's womb. However, you, the Christian find great pleasure in the discipline the Lord gives you through trials of your faith which brings about the "...obedience of faith for the sake of His name..." (Rom. 1:5b). What that looks like in a film may be showing some violence and having some cussing (I do cross the line at nudity. There's no need for it...EVER!).
What I’m doing with my life
Pursuing a career in directing film. Currently working as a "Territory Manager," which is the long-winded way of saying route guy with a company called Royal Cup Coffee. This company, you guessed it, sells coffee! Whats the number one fastest selling drug in the world? Caffeine! And this guy now helps distribute said drug to the masses! If anyone needs their fix, I'm your guy. Just remember it'll cost ya.......just buy me lunch and we'll call it even.
I’m really good at
Impersonations, acting, directing, writing, anything to do with dramatic portrayal of humanity and it's experiences. I play the drums and have a pretty decent singing voice.

If you haven't caught on by now, you should realize that I am a creative person who loves the arts.

On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging with friends at my place or their's, watching a movie or just chilling out............Is what I used to do now that I moved to Wilmington I have no friends so I watch movies by myself or read...or work late which is really what I've been doing for the past month.
You should message me if
God is your first love, because He first loved you.
You want to have a good chat about anything serious not about your day or your cat or anything trivial...even though I probably would talk to you about your cat, cause I'm a talkative person and will talk to anyone about just about anything!
