“I live for authentic stories featuring unique characters facing great adversity with themes of socio-economic injustice, survival and finding a sense of place.
Filmmaking is the ultimate team sport. It takes a deep appreciation of the craft and dedication from the crew and cast to bring the story to life. It’s a collaborative experience that I embrace at every turn.”
