Filmmaker working in Montana, Florida, & Beyond

NEWS! My Latest Project’s Release

‘Saving for The Day’ is an ambitious multi-genre film unlike any action-adventure you’ve ever seen. Over 400 Montanans worked on this grass roots project of passion for 12 years.

The world premiere happened on March 11th, 2023 in Missoula, Montana. The online release will be happening later this year and there might be more theatrical screenings before then. Learn more HERE!
