Director Statement

While I've been involved in the creation and dissemination of original content for my entire adult life, taking the role of creator/director/producer/editor and completing a project from conception to delivery has been the most challenging effort of my life. I have so much to learn but I have found that in the doing, and completion of a work of love, there is great satisfaction and appreciation from ones peers. Those who can see the value in such a varied skillset step forward to help me learn more about what I need to learn to move forward toward my goal of becoming a successful full feature writer/filmmaker.
I am grateful to all who have assisted me in my growth and I am thrilled to offer my first projects for you to enjoy.
