I've made a new documentary that I'm SO excited to share with you!!! Like so many beautiful, happy accidents, this project is made possible purely because of being at the right place and the right time - while on vacation and without a camera - and with the help of a small group of very trustworthy friends; both new and old. I wouldn't have even been able to make the film had it not been for my roommate (thanks again, Dan!!!) who was cool with overnighting me a Pelican case filled with my camera gear across the country. Life has a sense of humor sometimes.

I may be too naive to say this, but making a film is a lot like falling in love. It's wondrous, joyous, terrifying, inspiring, dizzying, frustrating, astounding, surprising, and ultimately - the more it happens - educating. [Yes, I'm one of those people who doesn't believe you only fall in love once in your life.] There are many analogies much wiser filmmakers than I have used to describe making a movie, but that's the way it currently feels like to me.

Moreover, this film is political in nature but in a way that shines a mirror on ourselves while remaining entirely objective. I hope it resonates with an audience upon its eventual release. I can't wait.
