PROCESS

“Throughout my journey, it’s been a process of becoming a better writer, which is not only helpful in the development of my own material, but in identifying a compelling story and finding the tools to convey that essence in a concise fashion. I’ve also served as cinematographer and editor on many of the branded content projects I direct for clients, enhancing my ability to visually communicate what’s on the page. I’ve worked under demanding circumstances and believe that a good director responds to challenges creatively and calmly, while protecting the integrity of the story for the audience’s enjoyment…”
