Director Statement

Becoming a film creator woke me up from a feeling of going through the motions. I love filmmaking because it is hard but not impossible. II love it because it involves so much disappointment, yet there seems to always be a way to channel failure into growth. I have never been comfortable in a narrow discipline and film brings everything together. Everything.
