"Life is my passion! I feel that every moment is a captured
image. Our daily lives are like movie scenes and we are the writer
and director. I enjoy people and stories in general and absorb
every ounce of what an individual shares with me. I like to take
life's art and translate that to moving images. What I love about
producing is bringing the team together as well as seeing a script
from paper to screen. That's one of the most exciting things about
being a producer. I also love working with creative people. My
favorite mantra is "Life is a visual manifestation of the
invisible workings of the mind." With your mind you create
the world around you. Make it the best it can be!"
