Growing up outside of Pittsboro, near Haw River, I homeschooled from First Grade until 7th. I took the 8th Grade competency test, decided against going the traditional route at Northwood after a neighbor's kid, a few years older, who I have always looked up to as being really smart, had bad things to say about the place. So I went to New Century Charter High School, at the time located at the old White Cross School in Orange County. I stayed there for two years until my sister, who'd been going there for three, graduated. The first year of school there had been somewhat fun/interesting, while the second year, to raise money, they brought in a bunch of drop-out borderline psychopaths. But I did have a couple of the nicest teachers, including one who made me love the subject of history.
I transferred to Central Carolina Community College in Spring 2001 to attend their Adult High School program in Pittsboro. I got my GED the following year. Did two years of curriculum study before transferring to UNCG for their Broadcast and Cinema study. Film school. I'd always wanted to be a director. I lived in the International dorm where I met a bunch of wonderful people, both local and abroad. I still keep up with some of them. I had enough fun there I didn't exactly put forth the kind of effort that could get me a really great GPA. Not that it really mattered in my field. You don't need to be a college grad to be a filmmaker.
I have struggled somewhat after graduation, exploring work as a videographer. The details of that I'll share at a later date. But I also worked some in community theatre through CCCC, which I found very rewarding. After doing a play in 2011, I decided in 2012 to give improv a shot. I'm loving it.
I'm a big movie buff and I try to get along with everyone as best I can.
