Director Statement

Creating or being part of creating stories is something I've always wanted to do. I dreamt of doing it. I never thought I would pursue it, but as I grew older, only being a spectator to visual stories wasn't enough. I felt I could contribute somehow, and I hope I can. There are many stories out there that I want to express to people, to entertain, enlighten, and pay homage to the people that inspired me.
