Director Statement

The family is an ever changing dynamic in today's society and to reflect that in my films are important. Strawberry Barbara was loosely based on my uncle's overcoming of my aunt's death. To portray his experience in a beautiful way meant a lot to me. I can only hope to be this significant with future films.
