I love storytelling. The process of taking an audience on a journey that's both emotionally engaging and entertaining is my life's passion. Ultimately filmmaking is just another form of communication; communication of beliefs ideas, emotions and abstractions. The films that ignited my fire to become a filmmaker communicated ideas and philosophies both susinctly and effectively. As a filmmaker I aim to master the craft of storytelling so that I can communicate with my audience susinctly, effectively and to the best of my ability.I write, direct, and act.
