It was in 6th grade, when Nathan decided he wanted to serve in the military before pursuing filmmaking professionally.
Nathan served 7 years on Active Duty Army service as a helicopter pilot and Aviation officer, including one year-long combat deployment to Afghanistan where he was awarded such accolades as the Bronze Star and an Air Medal with Valor device.
In 2013 he received an honorable discharge at the rank of Captain. It is a personal mission of his to ensure the life-lessons and integrity he experienced while in service forever reflect in his creative endeavors.
Nathan received an MFA in production from USC and believes his time in service was invaluable to his development as an artist.
As an Academy Nicholl Fellowship top 50 semifinalist and award-winning filmmaker, he has a passion for character-driven stories about relevant and meaningful subject matter.
Nathan is currently repped as a writer / director at LBI Entertainment where several of his projects are being developed, most notably having one of his feature scripts acquired by an Academy Award winning producer.
