He has worked in the Louisiana film industry since 2013 and has been a part of over 15 film and television projects. He recently produced, directed, and shot an episode of BetteR, a documentary web series produced by NOVAC, which highlights groups and individuals in the Baton Rouge community in the aftermath of the events of the summer of 2016.
