In film, through our stories, we find the visions and resolve we need to better appreciate and navigate our interdependent journeys. I love being a filmmaker and a filmmaking teacher because it allows me put my energy into helping create the kind of narratives that hopefully make at least a tiny bit of positive difference in this world. I see classrooms as community spaces, places for conversations toward thoughtful making. I am an ally, a co-learner and sometimes a guide, a fellow practitioner of this craft, delighted to be in the company of other film enthusiasts no matter what their experience-level.
