Whether directing a film or shooting a photo essay, the transformative possibilities of storytelling through imagery and shared experience remains a constant source of joy.
I believe that creatives have the chance to parlay content into opportunities to inject much needed compassion, humor, and awareness into society’s discourse and do so with the most evocative imagery possible.
This kind of intentional work could look like helping a business change the garment industry from the inside out, spotlighting an artist and the social and environmental issues that drive them, or illuminating a piece of our shared humanity in a short film. I look forward to approaching new projects through this lens of cultivating meaning and inspiring action.
