Director & Cinematographer
“When I was four years old, I told my parents, ‘I want to be a creator.’ I became a storyteller. I made comic strips, books, screenplays, animated shorts, skits, music, and movies. I found that true to my heart I am a filmmaker. I have pursued filmmaking nearly obsessively my whole life. I believe films, and characters in films, have an impact on how an individual may think; and through connecting with characters, we understand and evoke feelings and ideas within ourselves. My goal is to have this kind of impact on people.”
