“There is something about cinema that can hit you, deep down in your soul, a really good film envelopes you, and you connect with every aspect of it. Cinema has the ability to transport you to a different world. I wanted to be part of that world. For me it was something about the collective nature of film, the visuals, the story and the sound.”


“Rather then being in front of the lens I find that I can express myself much more artistically from behind it. The great thing about being behind the lens is you get to tell a story. Even in its most rudimentary form, cinema allows you to tell a visual story. That alone is wonderful, but when you add music, sound, voice and a written narrative, you really get to explore the possibilities of cinema.”

“I subscribe to the notion that the best mentor is ‘life itself’; use life and its experiences, the people you meet, and the things that happen, as a guiding source for inspiration and knowledge. You can never stop learning from the world around you, no matter how old and experienced you are. The moment you stop learning is the moment you stop living.”
