    My work is motivated by a desire to promote socially conscious thinking. I come from an economically disadvantaged background in a small rural town in central Pennsylvania. I grew up surrounded by people who saw little hope for a better life as factories closed down and wages stagnated.

    Their hopelessness led to drug and alcohol addictions, violence, suicide, domestic abuse, and other self-destructive behaviors that create wider social problems.

    These experiences and memories have provided a guiding principle in my work as a filmmaker. Although I am motived by a sense of cause, at the same time I am able to look at issues without prejudice and present the facts in an unbiased manner. I believe these are some of the qualities that make my team and I the right candidates to tell the important story of labor history in the America.
