Director Statement

As a filmmaker, I believe audiences should find personal connections to the characters and stories. Films allow us to express ourselves and develop deeper understanding, especially if we allow audiences to reflect on their own experiences by filling in the blanks. I would like audiences to create their own backstories and endings. Rather than being passive viewers, I challenge others to look for individual meaning. I call this "watching with intent."
