Personal Quote:

Filmmaking is an expression of our soul. It's who we are at the most fundamental. It's the closest thing to my essence there is. I'm not very good expressing that in other ways. I'm not very good talking to people, I'm not very good at dinner parties. That's where I allow myself to be revealed. [2017] See more »
