"Entrepreneurship has been new and quite bumpy. The main quality that helps me persevere when it gets tough is my desire to change my circumstances post injury. I suffered a spinal cord injury in October 2004 and it changed my path, and that journey has been a lot tougher than becoming an entrepreneur. I also want to provide a very nice next phase for my mother who has been a great help throughout my journey."

“Video is powerful. These moving images have the power to change lives. It’s tangible, it makes a difference on the world around us, and gives me a sense of purpose with my career. Real stories are relatable, we can follow in the steps of the subject’s journey right along with them, and gain insight about people, places, things, the present and the past, or even help you learn about yourself.”
