My prediction for 2019: the blurring of sectors will gain steam. We’ll see more sectors colliding and combining to create something bigger and more impactful than each could do on its own.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with the talented Producer, Tim Chung, over the past couple of months to capture and articulate my story & message using the vehicle of film.
