Director Statement

My work focuses primarily on environmental conservation but that cannot be addressed without recognizing the inherent social justice issues related to the human right to a healthy environment.
In what is known as "British Columbia, Canada", indigenous people are still fighting for survival in the face of colonial exploitation of "resources", yet we all depend on a healthy environment to survive, so the struggle is for all of humanity.
This is the story I help to tell.
