From documentaries to commercial work, story has always been king. And my own personal life experiences truly help drive my storytelling. Life hasn’t always been the kindest, but I try to find the silver lining and play the hand I am dealt in the journey I am on. I believe there’s beauty in transparency. I’ve been thru divorce. My son has grown up in a broken home. I’m now remarried with 3 kids. My wife Amber recently had 2 biopsies because doctors believed she had cancer. Our family has moved 5 times in one year due to extremely serious health issues. It’s been heartbreaking and exhausting to say the least, but it’s lit a fire inside to inspire others thru film.
When ENDPAIN came along in the summer of 2016, it was no coincidence. Their platform allows us as directors, not only to flex our creative muscle, but to impact others thru stories of inspiration and hope. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a blast creating brand films for clients or fictional narrative & short films. But the chance to make an impression on someone's life thru making film, is an incredible honor that I don’t take lightly. I believe my films for ENDPAIN will encourage others to find that same silver lining, and look beyond the immediate pain they’re experiencing to find hope.
In this ENDPAIN spotlight on family and passion, midwife Nicole Young speaks of how she deals with her pain condition by bringing new life into this world. “When you give to others they give back to you and so then you’re able to help each other.”
