Director Statement

I am open to all kinds of storytelling by creating a blend of various forms of art to make a stronger and powerful visual story that's associated with more than just one element or perspective, I believe that each project I work on is different from the previous or the next, and I respect the fact that different people can express each element differently, the world we live in is prone to responding to audio visual works. I am always looking forward to telling and creating films that have something positive to say. I am always humbled and honored that my films reach many audiences and share a story they may not have known before. My hope is to carry on this inspiration to others.
