“I’m constantly pursuing new perspectives. There’s nothing more exciting than seeing the world though another persons eyes.”

“Right from an early age, I was drawn to two things: music and filmmaking. In my teen years I did a lot of flipping back and forth between focusing on music and film. My twenties have been focused on film and video projects, but music is something that I’m still very passionate about. I’m now starting to get to work with musicians on video projects, so that’s maybe a way of marrying the two worlds in my mind.”

“I never want to feel too comfortable or feel like I’ve seen enough of the world, met enough people, accomplished enough. I always want to be inspired to do more.”
