I'm a filmmaker because it is an empathetic craft, and a meaningful way to exercise curiosity about the world. It's the perfect medium to explore new spaces both physical and existential; it's an excuse to forge meaningful conversations and experiences with strangers; it's a window into worlds underexposed. I am deftly moved by the notions and nuances that make us human... and what better way to explore these than with a camera that brings their texture to life for others to experience as well?

People are complex, unique and visually compelling for a bazillion reasons. Capturing a person in film is a feat; the pursuit is priceless.
It's what makes character - juxtaposition of old vs new in a frame; a kid's goofy smile kid in midst of tragedy; a flower in a trash heap.
Textures speak volumes - age revealed in small frays of a carpet's edge; softness in wrinkles of eyes; thirst quenched in a cola's bubbles.
