Director Statement

Ever since childhood I have been interested in people’s stories. Understanding other people’s motivations and dreams has always helped give clarity to my own journey. As a kid, I used to sit in my room and create narratives around the things I read in books and saw on TV, never actually believing I could make a career of it one day. When I found skateboarding and punk rock in the mid 90’s, it taught me anything was possible. All you need is the fire and passion it takes to create, and the stubbornness to never let anyone tell you otherwise. I adopted a DIY philosophy, moved to Brooklyn, started bands, and began creating and promoting my work on my own terms. Today as a working editor, producer, and director I continue to bring that same approach to the stories I help tell. Whether it be narrative or documentary I try to bring the same passion to the work, and my connection to the characters is what ultimately allows me to invest a piece of myself into each project. Their stories are also my journey.
