I consider it no greater challenge than sharing God’s message. As a filmmaker, this desire has brought me to Hollywood, the home of excellence in film production and quality. It’s my desire to meet or exceed this production excellence, yet present the stories and content that until most recently has been absent in mainstream motion pictures and televisionI want to hear the words, ‘Your story helped change my life!’ That’s what motivates me every day towards excellence in film and television production.”
