From sharing captivating ghost stories around the campfire to experimenting on YouTube, his early experiences nurtured a creative spirit. This led to his acceptance into TheFilmSchool’s Prodigy Camp at the age of 12, further propelling his journey as a storyteller. DJ’s notable achievements at the SIFF FutureWave and the NATAS NW Regional Emmy’s, along with his participation at the National Film Festival for Talented Youth, solidified his industry presence at an early age.
