I was born in Ogden, Utah and lived there all my life with the exception of a brief stint in Arizona. I have always been creatively inclined, first focusing my aspirations towards the idea of being a graphic novelist before turning my attention towards film. I married my best friend in 2002, and we have three boys; Spencer, Chandler, and Oliver, who are my pride and joys and always find ways to keep me on my toes. We live in Syracuse, Utah with our beloved bassett hound, Hudson.

In 2005, I joined an Ogden-based film production company, Solar Shock Pictures, until I parted in 2011 after having directed 20 films and formed Entropy Pictures which includes several short films, a six-episode web series, and three full length features.
In 2008, I gave up a dead-end career path in retail, working at such establishments as Swire Coca-Cola and Admiral Beverage Company and started down the path of video and media production at TopTenREVIEWS. Since then, I've joined a software development company, StoryRock Inc., as Video Productions Director for the RMS Productions division working under former Miss America and ESPN Sports Reporter, Sharlene Wells-Hawkes.

I have a fond interest of film and the works of such creative film-artists as Tim Burton, Christopher Nolan, David Fincher, Ridley Scott, Danny Boyle, Alfonso Cuaron, Darren Aronofsky, and Bryan Singer among others. My favorite films include The Dark Knight, Fight Club, Donnie Darko, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, V for Vendetta, Big Fish, Inception, Children of Men, The Matrix Trilogy, and Cloud Atlas.
