Director Statement

I fell in love with story telling from a young age, living in a world of fantasy and make believe. Through film I learned to bring those imaginative worlds to life, weaving stories that connect us and make us question aspects of our lives and where we are headed, individually and collectively. Young Blood has proven itself a special project for me, as it deals with man's constant search for immortality, and how far we are willing to go in our pursuit of it. I find sci-fi a fascinating medium to explore morality in our potential futures.
