The Vision

The vision of Brave Maker is to elevate brave voices.

Artists and storytellers are prophets, creative forces in our world that speak to our need for justice, beauty, diversity, equality, and spirituality. This is a painstakingly difficult calling.

My goal as a bravemaker filmmaker is to make provocative, life changing media and create meaningful experiences that not only entertain but incite dialogue, awareness,  and bravely shape our culture. I believe in the power of story relayed through films and I want to empower others who have these same aspirations.

Brave Maker's mission is to invest in filmmakers and coach creators to tell their stories and gather audiences to engage in essential conversations and explore life's meaningful questions.

Brave Maker celebrates diversity and aspires to help foster inclusion across communities through guided discussions and powerful authentic storytelling.

The world needs us to share brave stories. Making, discussing and applying art can be one of the bravest acts of our lives. 



Brave stories change the world. You are the story!
