Film Director & Teacher
“I’m a full-time film director & best selling instructor who teaches aspiring video creators how to create incredible videos.”
As a young kid I’d listen to music with my headphones on full blast, imagining scenes and stories that fit together perfectly with all the sounds I was hearing. I then quickly found my life’s passion, creating films that engage the visual and auditory senses in ways that move people.
Today, this passion has led me to continue to create these engaging videos and films, but on a much larger scale. I now teach filmmaking to my growing community of 135,000+ students in over 130+ countries around the world.
In these online courses which are translated in over 60+ languages, I share everything I know about:
○ Direct, film, and edit like a (boss) talented professional. 
○ Turn your passion into a career, aka make money doing what you love.
○ Express yourself and create videos you’re proud to share with the world.
