Director Statement

Although not trained as a filmmaker, I like making short films that combine live action, animation, photo manipulation, and fabricated objects. I am pretty much a one person production house. I would like to believe otherwise, but I think that all of my work is somewhat of an exploration of my own psycho-pathology: childhood and young adult memories both real and made up as well as childhood trauma.
