Director Statement

As an artist who works primarily in theater, film and new media, I tell stories that investigate relationships of family, friends, love, social issues and the environment. In doing so, I'm interested in the way human beings communicate to each other during times of personal crisis to solve problems, heal and move forward. Whether it's comedy or drama it must be truthful. I like a collaborative work environment that is fun, educational, personal and makes the best of my resources. When finished, I want it easily accessible for anyone to experience.
