I Believe...​

Filmmakers have the most power to change the 21st century and usher in a new world.

 

As a young girl, I grew up in a home where I had no voice.  I encountered a lot of violence and learned very early to “KEEP QUIET.”

 

Through years of personal development, I learned how to unleash the power of my voice and the healing power of creativity.  
 
That’s why today, I’m an Advocate and Activist to help filmmakers get their voices heard through what I believe is the best medium of the 21st century: FILM! 

Joanne Butcher has been instrumental in helping me understand the business side of film making. Without her mentorship, I wouldn’t be where I am today. She has saved me years of treading water when it comes to making movies.
