Experimental cinema demands the audience be actively engaged rather than passive. It is a portal into worlds of experience beyond traditional storytelling film structure.

I am a 23-year-old independent filmmaker, artist, and composer for film, based out of Atlanta.

My films (experimental/avant-garde and documentary) are in the Film section. The posters below link to the films but don't include my ongoing Thinklematter art shorts, which are on he filmography page, or my commercial work. All posters are designed by me and feature my art.

Samples of my commercial film work can be found in the For Hire section, along with work skills and history.

For films, I needed music. For the majority of my work, I compose my own soundscapes, some of which may be found in the Music section. I also record other music and have ventured recently into live synth performance.

I'm also an artist, with work in surrealist gallery shows and publications. I have several zines in print and webcomics online. The zines and webcomics section has information on these. More art is in the Art section and on Instagram.

I am a co-host on the cinema podcast Talk Cinephilia to Me. Follow the podcast on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The best experience will be on Facebook for show notes and information.

My contact email and all social media information can be found under connect.

On this website, we've stayed old school html as we were weary of battling Wordpress hacks and we like the look. It works well if you just swipe to enlarge on a phone, but is built for optimal viewing on a larger screen.

The Death of a Home, released November 20, 2020.

Death of a Home poster

The Death Of A Home is an experimental documentary about our personal experiences with the gentrification of Atlanta. This documentary specifically concerns our second gentrification in a two-year span with the current rise of emptying out affordable apartments to reconfigure them as tourist Air BNBs and pricier condominiums. It was the second time we were gentrified in a two-year span. This documentary is built up of footage I captured of our daily life during that second gentrification.

I am co-helming a new cinema podcast! "Talk Cinephilia to me" was conceived of in response to the great Covid-19 shelter-in-place. We're having a great time with it and hope you'll enjoy it now, while we're all in lock-down, and in the future as well. Our plans are that there will be three to four episodes a month. Follow the podcast on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The best experience will be on Facebook for show notes and information.

Cinephilia

A concert that I performed for the opening of the second run of the Polymorph Bodyshop surrealist art exhibition in Birmingham, Alabama. Some keyboard glitching can be heard during certain sections of the show. Whether or not it’s a technical error or an extra texture to the noise is a mystery. Also included with the Bandcamp release are the original, patchless mixes of some of my prior noise tracks.
