Director Statement

Private First Class was definitely one of my favourite shoots as a director. It was my first time directing a script I hadn't written, which was a new challenge. I really believe in this story and feel that it is really relevant in this time. I'm so grateful to the brilliant writer Kevin Forde and all my cast and crew who helped bring this all together with me!
