I think one of my greatest influences when I was growing up was comedy. From stand up to movies, comedy has shaped me into the fun and slightly strange man I am today. People like Mel Brooks or Woody Allen really connected to me when I was a kid. Being able to make people laugh to me is the greatest gift one can have in the world. Now that this is said I think as a filmmaker I must not only focus on the heart warming moments that can make us laugh but also be able to focus on some of the much more serious events that occur in our lives. I want to capture the stories that matter to the people around me. And tell these stories in a meaningful way. This has been something Ive wanted to do since I was a kid. And its something that I hope to still be doing later in my life.
