  • About Me

    I pursue passions not paychecks.

    Roger Ebert said "movies are the most powerful empathy machine of the arts". I believe that wholeheartedly. It's my hope that through my work in the medium, I can help bring people together by promoting and exhibiting the stories and storytellers that can change the world. When I'm not doing that, I love hanging with my wife and two little ones!
