What personally makes you unique among others in the industry?

I have experience writing, directing, producing, shooting, and editing an assortment of videos and pride myself on finding the right approach to a variety of production needs. I work hard to tell the right story with the right purpose.

What is your favorite social media platform and why?

My favorite social media platform is YouTube because it democratizes video publishing to anyone in the world. People can showcase their talent, opinion, style and uniqueness, in a format that was previously only available to major television studios. With equipment as basic as a single smartphone, someone can produce their own ‘show’ for subscribers of their channel, all for free. This is absolutely huge, and people shouldn’t forget what a time we live in.
