I have lived in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area my entire life. Started in the Wyoming area, then moved to Grandville where I spent my high school career and truly fell in love with film through my A/V teacher, Terry Blevins. I now reside in Dutton, Michigan. I live with my amazing wife who drives me each day to be my best and live my dream out as a writer and film maker. I also have two children, both boys ages 10 and 6.
My passion for film and story telling started with a little movie called, Jurassic Park. Other movies such as John Carpenter’s: The Thing, Signs and The Conjuring 2 have fueled my imagination. My favorite genre is horror. A side genre in the realm of horror that I love due to movies like Creature from the Black Lagoon, Aliens, and Jurassic Park, is the “ Creature Feature.”
A few of my hobbies include: Collecting Friday the 13th stuff, TMNT, comic books, and Lego. I love playing video games such as Friday the 13th and Over Watch. My favorite authors are: Ray Bradbury, Dean Koontz, Stephen King, and Jonathan Wood. A couple of favorite directors are: James Wan, Adam Green, and Steven Spielberg.
For the past four years I have been writing and helping create two fan films of the slasher genre and an original comedy with one of my best friends from high school, Bill Gelineau.
ZOSFilms has helped me live out my dream of being a story teller. I love everyone that I have had the chance to work with on our projects and cannot wait to see what the future holds for our unique and fun local film making group.
