Story intentionally bounds people together: different cultures, races, religions, and groups alike. It reveals the underlying pieces of the human condition; who we are underneath. Rather than picking sides, Story presents an idea for further discussion. I've had a great passion and affinity for sharing stories with others through film, leading to collaboration on projects with organizations, couples, and independent productions.
Some projects include: Real Sun Devil Stories (where students share their stories on faith and entering college), and Addiction by Subtraction; and independent film. I am currently on the path of directing short an feature films, and continuing the endeavor of storytelling. Creating stories in film isn't solely about making films, but building relationships with others in the process.
