I crossed the OCEAN for a HEART of GOLD.
I WANT TO LIVE!
I WANT TO GIVE!"
It's been over 4 years since I graduated from Columbia College film school in Chicago, IL in May 2008. Right after I did I moved back to an apartment in the Detroit, Michigan area and since then my life has been a crazy journey trying to make sense of my mind and get it on track. Bipolar days never come easy for me, but I'm thankful for the true friends and family I have in my life. Though I know a lot of people I once knew well have left me over recent time, but I've learned to let them go. You can't worry too much about people who worry nothing of you. All you can do in this life is give it your best and appreciate those who truly love and help you and be thankful for having them in your life.
As a filmmaker I've made a lot of progress in the last year and I hope to continue to keep things moving forward with it. The internet is the greatest tool I have right now to promote my work and I feel like I'm making a difference with it. I've been into film and video since I was ten years old and never plan to give up, ever. I'm 27 years old this year and soon enough with the help of my friends and family, I hope to make my dreams a reality.
