“My process with making a documentary is uncovering a place in the world I didn't know before. I find something that calls my heart and then the story reveals itself. The last short documentary I submerged myself into the world of transvestite prostitution, gang relations, faith and homelessness in the heart of Hollywood for almost two years. For my narrative work, it is an idea that is sparked in my mind. Sometimes in the form of a concept or a stream of consciousness. Through development that takes form and shapes into a fluid story. ”
