I was 10 years old when my Dad gave me a Zenith VHS Camcorder to make my first film. The stakes were high. The plot involved a home being robbed and a dog, Teddy, saving the day with a heroic take down of the burglar. As the burglar rounded the hallway corner and was to face off with our unprepared hero dog things appeared dismal. Teddy was caught of guard and the burglar attempted to take advantage of this moment. In a magical twist Teddy vanished out of thin air. The burglar, perplexed, failed to notice Teddy reappear behind him. Then Teddy took the burglar down. Making my dog "vanish" with an in-camera edit opened my eyes to the magical world of filmmaking, there was no going back.

People, situations & places that are truly genuine lead me to a hyper-focused state of filming moments reflective of that time & it's story.
Experiencing something new has the wonderful effect of pushing the work, the technique and the eye to grow stronger & be better.
Seeing a location, event or scene captured from another's perspective pushes my boundaries & allows me to reimagine what it means to create.
