"I thrive on being the outsider looking in - I am interested in stories that reflect an individual trying to make their own sense of the world.

My way in is a great character, a distinctive voice or a unique point of view that engages, excites or touches me.

I delight in the cinematic journey, the collaboration between those in front and behind the camera and the process of bringing that vision to life."
