Director Statement

When it comes to some things in life, I am definitely an example of a late bloomer. I fell in love with film from an early age and have been taking pictures ever since I was a boy. Now, I make photographs and create films. I interpret a film as a work of art.

I have always been fascinated by film and images, whether movies or photography. I am always amazed and interested in other people’s view points as captured and expressed in film; so much so that when I was young I started to create my own work.

If there is one idea I would like to leave you with, it is this: A deeper understanding that beauty is everywhere, in everyday experiences; like helping a stranger, smelling a beautiful flower, drinking a cup of coffee or holding hands with someone you love. Capture this on film and you may just be able to move the world or at the very least touch a life.

All of these experiences can represent tremendous beauty in the world. When I come upon an idea or subject that I find beautiful and snap a photograph or make a film, I capture that moment of beauty that lasted for a brief moment in time, but is now captured on film, to be immortalized forever.

I hope you enjoy my work and that it inspires you to be beautiful in your own way. Thank you.
