I believe that film and visual media have the power to educate audiences and help transform the way we perceive our reality. I strive to create non-fiction, visual narratives that inform public audiences of contemporary issues and help unite people from different communities. My goal is to help provide an honest voice for marginalized communities. I believe that education is at the forefront of change and that quality films are the best way to help improve society.
