How Your Program Is Unique Here:
Film and video is the literature of our time. I have the honor and privilege of helping students hone their skills to become the best storytellers possible in this powerful medium.

I accepted Jesus Christ as my savior at the age of four in my father’s lap in the basement of our home in Indiana. I have grown closer to Christ as he has walked closely with me through the loss of several close friends and family. I am proud to serve a God who is willing to stand in the mud of life with you. I currently continue to grow in my walk with Christ through reading scripture, praying, being connected in community at my church, and serving as well.

Favorite Bible Verse and Why:
John 11:35, “Jesus wept.” (NIV) I chose this verse because it is one of the most profound depictions of Christ’s humanity in the scriptures.
