I'm a Jazz Musician and a Documentary Filmmaker. I finished my first documentary film and now I'm working on various other projects. I'm influenced by films that focus on the human condition from various perspectives and the constant battle one endures in finishing this race called life. I have a passion and desire for documenting stories that not only express the human condition and its struggles, but the social complexities as well with true authenticity.
