My life passion has always been to tell stories for the empowerment and betterment of the individual and communities alike. I’m drawn to humanitarian documentaries, coming of age stories, the sci-fi genre, and I also have a knack for commercial/marketing content.
I stated 4th Street Productions as a hub to create films that make you feel. It’s grown gracefully into a full service creative and commercial studio. Currently most our staff is poc, a mix of sexes, backgrounds, and I’ve had such a pleasure to be employing interns from the city college I used to attend. While building this company I also taught film at a charter school in Compton and a mental health center in Sherman oaks. Helping others grow their potential is something I will always give my energy too.
Currently working on a community wide feature in Long Beach, CA.
