I believe in appreciating beauty, collecting light, embracing darkness, becoming closer to you, pursuing loneliness, being vulernable, building shields, nature as a companion, being honest and making things from one heart to another.
I began like many little kids do, with stubby crayons and sticks in the sand. It wasn't until I was in an art class and was challenged to express my emotions visually did I realize how strongly art would be a part of my life. I experimented with different art forms and fell in love with music, book-making, poetry and any medium that allowed me to tell a story.
I have directed other short films and documentaries which have screened at festivals such as SXSW, The Seattle International Film Festival, Montreal's top international 100 shorts, Newport Beach, and the San Antonio Film Festival. This year I also attended Sundance under the mentorship of Cassian Elwes (producer of Dallas Buyer Club), Christine Vachon (producer of Carol) and Lynette Howell (producer of Blue Valentine) as a recipient of the Horizon Award
Recognizing film as a powerful art form has inspired me to take full advantage of it's expressional qualities; I hope to always be experimenting and to be making films that become friends to some, and artworks to others..
*A big thank you to all of you who have been a part of my life, for you have influenced my films in some way, shape, or form. A special thank you to my family and to those who have been a part of them.
