My mission as a filmmaker is to be in a constant state of growth. I will do this by engaging with my field and producing content that pushes me beyond my comfort zone. I will strive to be technically proficient in all aspects of production and familiar with processes relevant to both narrative and non-fiction filmmaking. I will place character and story above all other considerations, but will always strive for relevance and impact. I will be patient with myself. I will prioritize human connection. I will remain positive despite adversity.
