He's a director and a versatile filmmaker, working on a variety of productions, with much experience in the entertainment industry, both performing and creating both promotional and narrative content. A director of commercials, short films, music videos, documentaries, & feature films.

In life Cole finds the joy in everything he does. He has many dreams and encourages others to do what they love to do and help change the world.
"The reason I love to act and make films is the feeling the audience gets that could possibly change their life forever”
- Cole Kornell
Newspaper from 2005 entitled, "Geauga boy makes movie". This inked the papers after Cole wrote, directed, and acted in his first film, Conquest Freedom, about a knight named Colagorn (played by Cole) who defends his village called Taragorn from an evil witch and her demons. Even at a young age Cole had grand ideas and wasn't afraid to accomplish them.
