  • My Story

    I was born In Greenville, SC. Growing up in the area, I saw my future as a businessman. However, I later saw life in film production. As a kid, I’ve always liked learning new things. What I did not know was that I would one day become a college professor. As God knows our life and journey better than we do, it was Him who guided me through some rough times in my life to produce what and who I am today. I am grateful that my parents are still and alive and I see them almost every Sunday after church.

    I am married to a wonderful woman, Emelyn. We have no children, yet.

    I graduated from a great university, North Greenville University. Coming back to the place that that many professors have made a big difference in my life is a dream come true. I remain excited that I am in a position to share my passion for learning and love for filmmaking.
