I was raised in a environment where creativity was nurtured. I do my best to give back to the artistic community by helping with programs for youth involved in the filmmaking and creative process.

In my home town of Annapolis, Maryland I'm a guest instructor and supervising audio technician at Filmsters Academy. Filmsters is a summer camp for kids who want to learn the basics of movie making. I have been working there for 8 years.

I have also volunteered with BAFTA for the Inner City Mentorship Program at Washington Prep in Inglewood, California for 3 years.

Educating people about sound has become something of a passion for me. My tutorials and advice have been featured on Aputure's YouTube channel (see below).
