It is my goal to learn and master the art of cinematography to bring emotion and truth by sharing the stories of others through film in a creative way. My family has always had strong values toward volunteering, community and caring for others. I want to create films such as: the causes of poverty, homelessness, its social exclusion problems and solutions. I want to project the emotions onto a screen where the audience can see the world through my eyes. The power of a story can make a change, for the rehabilitation of wrecked lives, for the relief of suffering and despair and for the saving of lost souls. Stories can unite us, so I want to tell the stories that unite. We need to see the world once again, with new eyes. I want my films to inspire and motivate others to get involved, frame-by-frame.

I am most passionate about being an activist for humanity. I believe that recognizing that you can make a difference and that you have the power to do something about an issue is at the heart of creating change for the better. Stay tuned… and look for my up upcoming documentary “Uniting to a Make a Difference” to be released in the summer of 2018.


“If our hopes of building a better and safer world are to become more than wishful
thinking, we will need the engagement of volunteers more than ever.” Kofi Annan
