Director Statement

Capturing the Iceberger club was, for me, an absolute once in a lifetime experience. I was surrounded and greatly assisted by incredible people, from both the cast & crew. Words cannot describe the process of Producing & Directing a documentary that is so close to one's heart, but seeing the final product be as close to what I had imagined is very humbling.
