Symmetry and balance. the light and the dark. i'm grateful for the young scrappy and hungry crew that taught me so much this past week.
when i was 19 or so, my big brother drove me around florida looking at different colleges because i wanted to transfer from the school in indiana and study movies. in the end i didn't change schools because i was afraid of "getting behind". so now 20 years later, after a lot of work on myself, accepting the different sides of me, not making them wrong, but finding uses for all of them, i directed my first film. it's never too late. i've got 164 years left on this planet. that's a lot of time to learn and create.
