Personal life[edit]

"I am currently doing a lot of writing. I have a lot of ideas in my head, regarding different things that I like to do. I am trying to get as much of my writing done as possible. I've got a couple things completed and I am just trying to get them and bring them out to fruition. I wouldn't mind working on all sides of the camera, in front of the camera and behind the camera to do some filmmaking."[1]
