Director Statement

I pursue a passion that I have had all my life watching films that created the magic I have always wanted to replicate. I have consistently made my work an example of my capabilities, never exporting that final cut until the project was better than my last. I want to use what I have learned and love, to create something that best represents the final outcome of my own abilities.
