Director Statement

At my core, I am a storyteller, using whatever visual communication technology I can to tell stories. In my current work, I photograph as well as make "visual short stories" of the people, places and things that I encounter. A visual short story, like a written one, is "...a narrative dealing with a few characters, one central theme, aiming at unity of effect, concentrating on the creation of mood rather than a plot," according to Merriam-Webster.
