When I was 8 years old I was watching a behind the scenes special on stop motion for Gumby. I realized at that moment that the camera was not simply a recording tool, but was quite literally manipulating the picture to tell a story. Since then, I have been creating stories of my own, whether as a production designer, visual effects artist, or a director. I believe in three things:
There is beauty in everything
There is no story without drama
Nobody believes they are the villain
I strive to put myself in somebody else’s shoes in every situation, to understand why they do what they do and how to tell a compelling story with that knowledge. I do my best to listen to those around me while balancing my own deliberate vision. I truly think that collaboration is greater in sum than separate individual efforts. I love to create. I hope you and I can make something wonderful together.
