Director Statement

I've spent many years on various sets as an actor and came to realize that my work was always helping someone else achieve their vision. With a desire to bring my own vision to life, I decided that if I was ever going to direct something of my own, the only way to do it is to simply just go for it. With my first short film 'Be Still' completed, I'm excited to see what happens in this festival season!
