About Me

CURRENT MISSION

"To film, explore, love & make art"

ABOUT ME

I'm a filmmaker/finearts model/ life travler/ artist living in Long Beach, CA. I love to explore everything, everywhere & everyone. I love making art and modeling/taking photos. I'm an avid show goer, and enjoy all kinds of music. I'm always down to go to a show, hike, explore, bar hop, skinny dip, camp, etc.
