Filmmaking has been a constant in my life; a heartbeat, a rhythm. My grandfather edited 8mm film in his basement, my father was an editor, my brother and I are third generation filmmakers and it has just made sense to me.
I love hitting the storyboard or the drafting table with a fresh idea; what is the story? why will people listen? how will we shoot this? I've learned that filmmaking is like a massive jigsaw puzzle, with each member of the team bringing a piece to the table. That collaboration and that challenge is why I do this, why I choose filmmaking, and it's why I'll move to that rhythm for all my days.

an artist's craft
I reach this state of flow when filming an artist at work. It's almost like a dance; two makers, creating and shaping our art.
Facing fear is like walking through a dark tunnel; you're scared as hell when you step in, but determined and confident as you step out.
Listening to to it is almost like prayer for me. It's on when I'm looking for inspiration, hope, bereavement, and elation; it moves me.
