I have been in search of form, just like I have been in search of home. My practice — once armored with sureness and didacticism — has shed its skin. When I look at its core, it is a longing to tell the stories that I want to tell. Those of loss, loneliness, reconciliation, of how the heart aches, weeps, heals, hopes, of the sorrow and sentience we share. Those of kisses. I want to tell them with as much depth, sincerity and humility as I can. I have become a filmmaker.

''Stories of love, loss and redemption,'' says the host of the podcast Modern Love. I wonder how many of us stumble across the wasteland of correctness waiting to be moved, understood, waiting to smile and receive a smile. Waiting, wanting. I want to tell stories of the heart — for how it aches, weeps, heals, hopes, for its sentience and sorrow, for its wounded kisses. I want to tell them with as much depth, sincerity and humility as I can. I have become a filmmaker.

Statement

I have been in search of form, just like I have been in search of home. My practice — once armored with sureness and didacticism — has shed its skin. When I look at its core — weathered, softened, bare — it is the longing to tell the stories that I want to tell.

Stories of love, loss and redemption, says the host of the podcast Modern Love. I wonder how many of us stumble across the wasteland of correctness waiting to be moved, understood, waiting to smile and receive a smile. Waiting, wanting. I want to tell stories of the heart — for how it aches, weeps, heals, hopes, for its sentience and sorrow, for its wounded kisses. I want to tell them with as much depth, sincerity and humility as I can. I have become a filmmaker.
