Hello! My name is Brody and I'm a student at Abilene Christian University, getting my BFA in Theatre and Acting. I'm from Snyder, TX and I have been acting and making films since I was a little kid. I believe that film is a ministry bringing value and comfort to everyone's life, and that we must not make art for ourselves but for the people that need it most.
