Director Statement

Looking for the universal poetry of humanity is a lifelong search. Project by project I pursue this goal; each encounter, film and photograph brings me closer. We all have our own aspirations, ambitions, and responses to the world. We all are on a path to find our own truth, one that aligns with our values, culture and vision. With my camera, I have the privilege of meeting a lot of people. As I look at them through my lens, I seek this universal poetry.

Every person is a poem waiting to be heard.
