Creative expression and the powerful conversations that come as a result, have been a way through which I have been able to understand myself in a deep and substantive way. Part of that understanding form me, is a knowing that there is an inner connectedness amongst us all and when I remember that, all things seem possible.
In my work as a filmmaker and speaker I get to see the transformative power of that connection. People walk into one of our screenings as strangers and they leave knowing that their life experience is actually a shared experience, which at it's core is a pretty mind blowing realization. Once we are reminded that we are not alone, hope is born.
Many people say we live in dark times. I disagree. I think we are living in a time when more people are waking up to their humanity than ever before. We're remembering that we're part of something bigger and that our intentions and our actions matter.
My biggest dream is to live a life of consequence and to have my work contribute to humanity feeling connected to itself in a meaningful way.
