A documentarian at heart, i strive to create memories for present and future communities, rendering the invisible visible.
I believe that : (a) the filmmaker's role has expanded as they use technology to reach out to new audiences and leverage ownership to their work; (b) no story is too big or small, it's how you approach it; (c) fiction and documentary are just two sides of the same coin, and (d) ART changes lives.
