Artist Statement
Ever since I was a kid, I have always had a wild imagination. I remember when I got my first video camera, I would make short videos with my Star Wars toys. I would show them to my parents and would enjoy seeing their reaction. Anytime I could, I would make videos, whether it be for fun or a class project.
My reason for wanting to do film is because it gives me an outlet to express my ideas. It allows me to give people a way to escape the real world and to lose themselves in the narrative. This is my reason to continue doing what I do.
