How I Started

I've always liked telling stories. Even in my career as a software developer, I realized that my passion was to teach and inform. This started a long road to become a filmmaker.

When I was eighteen, I saw the first documentary that really affected me: Streetwise:


I sat there watching this film about homeless kids in Seattle and something amazing happened. I got engaged with the story of real people first the first time.
