On writing as an assist to making.

You contain all the inspiration you need to tell great stories through your art.

On uncovering your talents.

Passion isn’t predictable. It’s personal.

Words I live by.

Stay in present time. Seek only the truth. Surrender your will to God. Love is the only true power. Honor yourself. Honor one another. All is one.
