A storyteller is a life poet, an artist who transforms day-to-day living, inner life and outer life, dream and actuality into a poem whose rhyme scheme is events rather than words, a-two-hour metaphor that says: Life is like this!

Robert McKee
Writing for screen is my first love. I feel strongly that the foundation of a great film is in a great script. With a background and degrees in Language and Literature, i have the skills to develop your ideas, help you to create the perfect scenarios and even push your ideas into greater dimensions.

The movies are like a machine that generates empathy. It lets you understand a little bit more about different hopes, aspirations, dreams and fears. It helps us to identify with the people who are sharing this journey with us.

Roger Ebert
Whether it be drama, documentary, corporate or commercial, every story deserves to be told. Life is about connections, and as a director I can help you to reach your audience. Together we can make them feel, cry, and laugh so hard their sides hurt. More importantly, I have the desire to tell the story you want told.

[Editing] disturbs the passage of time, interrupts it and simultaneously gives it something new.

Andrei Tarkovsky
Editing is like being a sculptor of time. For me, there is nothing quite like the joy of discovering the rhythm that will cement your story together and bring it to life. Every project has a unique aim and purpose, it is my job to discover and illuminate that vision in a timely manner.

If you hire a good location recordist, you won't need ADR. You don't want to use ADR. ADR is a last resort! Can i say it any clearer than that?

Kelley Baker
Clean dialogue is the heart of sound recording and is a clear sign of the level of professionalism in a film. Being on set brings a myriad of challenges, but there is always a solution to every challenge, and for me, delivering high quality location recordings to your editing suite is essential.

Doing sound design is one part creative, one part fixing things other people screwed up, and one part creatively fixing even more screw-ups.

Kelley Baker
Sound Design makes a good film great. It can make your project unique and stand out from the crowd. Good sound design is just as important as good cinematography. It is my philosophy that through dedication and flexibility, great solutions will be found to meet the directors vision.

Filmmaking is a chance to live many lifetimes.
