Director Statement

I was awarded the Actor as Creator grant at the same time as Craig and from there we worked on our projects together from the very beginning. Craig is a close friend of mine and I knew about his story and illness before he submitted for AAC. I was immediately attached to this project and wanted to help out in anyway I could and when Craig asked me to co-direct with him I immediately accepted the role and wanted to help bring Craig's story to life on such an important topic.
