I have always felt that my talents and experiences have a higher purpose, writing, film and all visual mediums offer maximum exposure to the soul. I want people to be riveted; to have an overall experience, visual, emotional, physical and spiritual. I want them to walk away feeling they got more then they expected.” “…one of the most exciting new visual artists of the twenty-first century
By Michael Eric Stein, Columnist for the Los Angeles Times and Films in Review.
