MY APPROACH

  • I think truth is stranger — and better — than fiction. There are a lot of different ways to tell the truth. I write, shoot video and take pictures.
  • Some stories are best told though motion, others through image and print. I let the story determine which tools I bring to the job.
  • My objective is to communicate with others. Doing that requires paying attention, listening to the voices inside my head and, hopefully, saying something that hasn’t been said to death already.
  • The impulse toward communication begins in the gut and so does my process. I’m an eavesdropper who strives to tell by showing. Seeing is believing and the mainline to feeling. Everything else is basically marketing copy.
