Director Statement

I wasn't ready to give up on my craft so I understood that we live in a world now where everything is at your fingertips. To simply put it, I felt as if there's nothing I cannot learn. I've been a day dreamer and a visionary my whole life and I know God didn't give me this talent to sit on.
