Director Statement

Everybody's life is a story waiting to be told. Every experience is a moment worth capturing, and every thing we see is from our own unique perspective. I observe human nature, the good and bad, and dissect every situation to be able to extract the underlying magic in it all. I then take that magic in all its horrific beauty and put it on screen, through my lens.
