My dad is the best storyteller I've ever met. When he's speaking he's got everyone's attention and it's impossible to not be engrossed in his tale. I've never had his gift of speaking but I wanted to be able to communicate in that way. Making films has given me that ability. Documenting and creating allow me to be at ease with my surroundings and give me purpose. Preserving memories with a camera allows my scattered thought process to be focused and intentional. In the past I've struggled with "being in the moment" vs. preserving the moment but I've found a balance. I know that recording my life and lives of others is what makes me most happy.
