I can’t recall a day going by in my life where I didn’t want to be a director. Filmmaking has woven itself so deeply into the fabric of my life that I can’t comprehend an existence without it. It is so engrained into my outlook and understanding of the world that I have made it my life mission to create work that gives back and changes people in the way that film has given to and changed life for me. When I looked across the street of my bedroom window in my childhood home at the “Ridge” Theatre sign, I knew I would make work that would play places like that. That’s the dream for me, to make movies.
Sounds almost childish, yet it is still as clear to me now as it was when I was a kid.
This is how I turn that dream into a reality...
