Talon is a filmmaker, photographer, and creative director with a passion for social justice and queer representation in media. Born and raised in the cornfields of Indiana, Talon always knew he didn't want to stay put between the stalks.

After two years with The Barn, he decided to pursue a full-time college career. Talon directed multiple short films and theatrical productions during his time at Ball State, where he worked alongside industry professionals to create film and theatre while in undergrad programs.
