Mark Twain said, “Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.” I think authenticity can sometimes hide within the shadows of that dark side, and art helps to illuminate it, providing tiny glimpses into our true selves.

No matter the medium – music, documentary or narrative filmmaking, how I approach a character as an actor, writing or photography – I want my art to explore the authentic, honest pieces of our shared humanity.
