Writer Statement

I've read a lot of history and philosophy. At some point with a lot of ideas rattling around, I realized I seem to know less now than I did before. I'm not even sure what that means anymore. People have a hard time living with that kind of uncertainty... it's the stuff wars are made of. If you can accept uncertainty and loosen the perception of reality, the ideas start to breed new creativity. The trick is to stay grounded enough to structure that creativity in stories that people can relate to-- their own fears, hopes, joys, losses, and excitements. Structure is what it's all about, connecting to deeply ingrained patterns that people can map their emotions to. Watching entertainment should empower the viewer to understand one's self, and one's place in the world.
