I am an awarding winning filmmaker, and I love stories that are exciting, original and healing. I love drama, dark comedy, documentaries and I love watching films, being doing it since I was a teenager, as a writer, actor, director and producer. I founded Weengushk Film Institute, a non profit training centre using film as a tool to teach youth how to read, write, communicate, leadership, business etc. and I love to work with youth and with filmmakers that like to collaborate. I love story editing as well.
