I see filmmaking as a way of learning to see, over and over again. Through this seeing, I strive to gain understanding of the many forms of existence around me and to honor the mysteries that persist. I hope to share in these pursuits with my students, all of us learning from each other and seeing though each other's eyes, if even for a moment.
