  • SKILLS

    ...that I've picked up over the years

    ...a Creative with a camera in hand since the age of 6, having grown up near the entertainment capital of the world, I always wanted to create stories that matter, through motion picture.
    While serving in combat overseas,
    I found an artistic escape from the reality of war by creating short documentaries that showed the human side, “behind the scenes”. Kelso is a Professional Master Diver, FAA Pilot, Alumnus of the New York Film Academy and proud card carrying member of Blockbuster.
