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 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 for a smile and smile ourselves. Waiting, wanting. I want to tell the stories of the heart — how it aches, weeps, heals, hopes, with its sentience, its sorrow, its wounded kisses. I want to tell them with as much depth, sincerity and humility as I can. I have become a filmmaker.
