Started in the film business. Produced. Produced more. Produced a little bit more. At some point picked up a stills camera. Produced even more. Drunk a fair bit of coffee. Found that the more I produced, the less I enjoyed it. So, intelligently, produced some more. And drank more coffee.

Stills started to take over. One night, I made a choice. I changed my focus to photography from filmmaking. Spent a year teaching myself anything and everything on it I could find. Drank yet more coffee. Never assisted. 

Started shooting professionally. And now, I'm still here. Still a filmmaker. And still drinking coffee.
