“People will forget who you are, people will forget what you did, but people will never
forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou.
My passion for filmmaking is fueled by the desire to witness and experience lifetimes and stories of people. I am an extremely curious person and it's that quality that drives my passion to make films that shine a light on our diversity, focusing on different cultures, different religions and generation gaps. I am committed to creating a world where acceptability and understanding are the norm.
I use the craft of filmmaking as a creative medium to explore unfamiliar territories and circumstances, revealing the extraordinary ways humans interact with each other and with their environment... allowing all of us the gift of rediscovering our own curiosity about the world.
