About

WHY I CREATE
My work in the cinematic landscape reflects a sensitivity to possibilities and horizons of the medium. I choose this medium because of its collaborative nature - every project is an opportunity to work with a new musician, dancer, carpenter, painter, actor, activist, explorer, entrepreneur etc. When our work is successful we share in the fruits of our labor, strengthening our connections to each other and to the communities that we represent. In a world that's reaching its boiling point, authentic and powerful human connections are an imperative to our survival. Creating and sharing art is one of the best ways to build community. I choose to create beautiful things because we need beautiful things in our society to remind us of the collective human potential to love.

If you choose to contribute to my efforts, you are not just supporting me but everyone I work with. If you choose to contribute to my efforts, I consider you a collaborator from the depth of my heart.

WHAT I CREATE
My cinematic work includes Narrative Films, Music Videos, Documentaries, Visual Installations, and Promotional Content (for organizations/causes committed to doing good in our communities). The people I collaborate with are local artists and activists. I choose to work with them because I believe in their voices, appreciate the beauty of their creations and admire their courage to use their resources to dismantle systems of power that oppress the majority of our brothers and sisters.

WHAT YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS WOULD HELP ME WITH
Festival Submissions 
I want to get my work out there, festival applications and submissions necessitate specific and individual fees for entry ranging from 10$ to 60$. Being accepted to a film festival is a great opportunity, except it means taking time off work to travel to distant cities. Your contribution would allow me to submit work and travel to local and national film festivals including Atlanta Film Festival, Austin Film Festival, New Orleans FIlm Festival, Camden Film Festival, Denver Film Festival and Hot Springs Documentary Festival.
