STATEMENT OF MY INTENT“One must be of one’s time and paint what one sees.” — Edouard Manet
The time we live in and our point of view within it is the most valuable thing we can provide as an artist. As a director and writer I bring my experiences and my point of view into each project I work on. I believe the more specific one gets, the more universal the work can become.
Over the years, I have studied various aspects of the filmmaking process; not only directing and writing, but cinematography, gaffing, and acting as well. I pride myself in my technical knowledge and ability to collaborate with my crew, but also being able to switch gears and talk with my actors and discover what they need.
