Currently, I’m in pre-production on my first feature film, “Symphony in Sweeatch,” which will be scored by the amazing composer Dave Merson Hess. I have been writing the story and drawing characters for months now. I have a ton of visual ideas I have sketched out on paper, which I look forward to expanding in the future, in many aspects of my art.
