Liaison of Light


Growing up in Augusta, GA I always enjoyed playing in the woods and exploring. One time some friends and I read online that you could combine toilet bowl cleaner and aluminum foil in a plastic bottle… my mom didn’t talk to me a few days after that, but the grass in the back yard finally grew back over.

Living in Atlanta is exciting. I love every day waking up in a city where everyone is busting their ass. After going to Georgia Southern in Statesboro, it was great to move somewhere with other people like me. I think what drew me to filmmaking was the desire to make pictures that matter. Images that move people. In each project, there are all these tiny irrelevant pieces, but then you arrange them in such a way that it makes something beautiful.

Friendly Human is a community of people that makes me feel a little less crazy and a little less alone in the world. My favorite part is the communal drive for making the world better for others. It’s all about people, and that’s pretty nifty.
