I grew up on horror films. My first horror film in a theater was "Freddy VS Jason", I was 6 years old and over the moon with emotion and love for what I thought was such an insanely cool film. I also remember going to video rental stores and picking the horror films with the coolest covers or the ones I've seen over and over, which eventually turned into lifetime favorites.
17 years later, I'm still collecting merchandise and movies like a kid in a candy store and watching the genre religiously. Since elementary school, I've loved writing stories and creating characters. I also always had the dream of being in horror films or apart of them somehow, whether it be writing, SPFX, directing, producing, or acting. I never thought it was possible to make my biggest dream a reality until I met Tristan.
After becoming best friends at a local horror convention, I sent him a short story I did for Creative Writing in High School and it quickly spawned into our first feature film, "Red Eye". We took our common passion and love for horror and stopped at nothing to do what we've always dreamed of. It's such a surreal feeling to do something for the genre that has impacted my life so much; it's an ultimate fulfillment in my life. I still pinch myself and geek out on every set I go to, even if it's my own.
I've always been fascinated by how a film is created, pretty much everything intrigued me about the filmmaking process. Although I wasn't allowed to watch horror films as a child, that didn't hinder my passion one bit. i began attending horror conventions in 2013 where i found people that were just like me. shortly after, in 2015, i met destinie at a convention and we have since built off each other and grown as deranged minds entertainment.
In the horror genre, you can focus on the real terrors of the world, you can focus on subjects that you usually do not see in other genres. In horror, there is no limit to what can be done or what line can be crossed. That is one of the reasons why my passion for the genre will never end.
