"As a son of the rich Trinidad and Tobago soil and through my uniquely Caribbean lens, my ambition is to create boundaryless, story driven cinema of the highest quality, with universal themes that are relatable to audiences around the world.
I want to focus on rich stories and interesting characters. I want my films to impact you, so that you leave learning not only about other cultures, but hopefully yourself."
