Writer Statement

I love writing. Since I was young, I'd write short stories. I was sent to gifted and talented classes in 4th grade. I was writing my own raps and spoofs of songs in middle school. In high school I wrote short stories. Now, as a filmmaker I'm very fortunate to write stories that compel me to complete them. Ones that hopefully one day, may get made into motion pictures.

Writing to me is really the best form of artistry because it serves many arts in one. As an actor, I can play all the parts. As a director, I can craft the scenes and build the suspense. As a producer, I can write for budget and what can be marketed on the world stage.

I love writing because it transports me to a place that is dangerous, loving, and challenges to step out of my comfort zone and dare to dream.
