ATHLETICS

Football Quarterback 4-year varsity QB at Wash.U. (as high as backup QB since freshman year)

       At Sacred Heart Cathedral Prep. in San Francisco, broke QB Tom Bradys league QB records

       Invited to prestigious Elite 11, Nike FTC, FBU Top Gun, Super 7 and NUC Ultimate 100 camps

       Tutored by Tom Martinez (tutor to QB Tom Brady) and Roger Theder (Pac-12 head coach and NFL coach)

 

Film and football are my greatest passions in life.  While striving to be the best in both fields, I came to realize the similarities between the two.  Film and football are the greatest sources of entertainment and joy when the efforts of many working together as a unit are perfected.  The qualities of a Quarterback, including leadership, execution under pressure, improvisation, poise, intense work ethic, competitiveness, collaboration and teamwork, directly correlate to the job of a director.

 

Becoming a college QB is a year-round full-time job prior to and in college, due to the level of competition and time commitment.  I worked extremely hard with my QB tutors after school, on weekends and every day during the summers.  This dedication and the personal characteristics I possess enabled me to become a college QB, and will carry over into my career goal of entering the movie and/or television industries and becoming a filmmaker.
