FILMS

My passion is to use the medium of movies to bridge the communication gap in our relationships with others and (especially) in our relationship with our individual selves.  Movies should inspire, heal, transform, and connect. I aspire to write movies that make people feel something, whether that's a laugh, a cry, or an epiphany.
