Director Statement

When I think about what I do, I think of myself as one of the most fortunate people in the universe! I believe that my mission in life is to tell stories to people about people that will somehow touch people in the most positive, gentle and loving kind of way. I have come to the realization that people by their nature cannot and will not change. The only thing they can do is to change the way they look at things. As a filmmaker, I strive to perfect my craft daily, by telling such stories that can and hopefully will ignite positive changes in people’s lives.
