I'm a writer, director, filmmaker and unstoppable storyteller. When I’m not reading, researching or restless, I’m making movies. Most of my main projects are mostly visuals. Film is a brilliant combination of written word, music, sound and pictures, so I’m always looking at ways I can tell a story visually, rather than relying on dialogue to explain things.
