“Throughout my Director’s journey, it’s been a process of becoming a better writer, which is not only helpful in the development of my own material, but in identifying a compelling story and finding the tools to convey that essence in a concise fashion. I’ve also served as cinematographer and editor on many of the projects I direct, enhancing my ability to communicate visually in any medium or genre. I’ve worked under demanding circumstances and believe that a great Director responds to challenges creatively and calmly, while protecting the integrity of the story for the audience’s enjoyment…”
