Filming wasn’t something I grew up thinking it would be my passion. I had dreams of being in law enforcement, so I joined the United States Marines. After my service, I realized law enforcement wasn’t for me. I started working meaningless jobs for a few years before I randomly bumped into a few friends I have seen in over a decade. They had a film company together and saw that I love art and music. I soon realized that filming is combining art and music. Once I discovered the joy of telling a story in the art of film, I decided to go back to school.
While studying the art of film at San Jose State University, I continued to work for a friend’s company filming mainly weddings. Over the next few years, all I could think about is how to capture someone’s love story and retell it in a way to bring back memories, not only for themselves, but for others as well.
When I decided to start Heartbeat Studio, the only thing I had in mind was to only film something I would enjoy being apart of from beginning to end. Being involved throughout the entire process enable me to feel more connected to the story and help build a stronger relationship with those whom I’m making the films for.
