Director Statement

This is the very first film I have written. It was a spur of the moment idea that came to me while sitting in my room wishing to be able to go to auditions. My mom's work scheduled did not allow time for trips to NY or anywhere else to do any type of work.
So, I decided to write my own story and later directed it with a great cast and crew.
Will I write any other stories? I have but directing was not as easy as I thought....I would have to really think about it.
