Imagination is as much about belief as it is about creativity.
Look at kids on the playground. What do you see? Short people on stuff. That's it. But to them. To the kids... They're on another planet. Mars, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn. They're flying over mountains and battling ferocious dinosaurs. Boys become heros and girls become queens and the playground gives infinite opportunities to an infinite amount of possibilites. For that half hour or so they're on the playground, the world is theirs.
What if we never stopped believing like that? What if, as adults, we felt the same passion and opportunity as kids on a jungle gym? Imagine what we could do and who we could be. If every single adult started saying "What if we could..." instead of "No, it can't be done." What if we could solve world hunger? What if we could stop climate change? What if we could live in a world where every single person has an opportunity and a voice?
What if we could?
I believe that world already exists. It's right here in front of us. I believe that 'we can' and that the more people who believe that too, the faster 'we could' will turn into 'we did'. What if we did solve homelessness in America? What if we did find a cure for HIV? What if we did land humans on Mars?
In everything I do, I believe in sharing stories that inspire our imaginations and challenge us to think differently. I am a filmmaker, photographer, and storyteller, and this is what I do.
