Poverty, Inc.The Great Recession of 2008 proved that Wall Street and Washington's promises of rising wages, upward mobility and job security were little more than empty rhetoric that paved the way to broken dreams, soup kitchens and homelessness for millions of American citizens. Six years later, the ranks of economically disenfranchised Americans continue to swell.

Examining the influence of corporate globalization and exposing the destructive nature of our modern financial system, Poverty, Inc. offers a sobering look into how the predatory economic policies instituted by America's new elite class have contributed to the nation's descent into Third World status.

Gold Award for Feature Documentary - 2014
Gold Award for Direction - 2014

Every child deserves to be loved, and the opportunity to lead a happy, healthy and successful life. Unfortunately, statistics continue to demonstrate that childhood sexual abuse is rampant in our society. Those children who are innocently victimized by the actions of others carry "invisible scars" and adverse childhood experiences throughout their adult lives. Admittedly, child sexual abuse is difficult for people to talk about. It causes fear, shame, and anxiety, all of which promote silence. Predators rely on that silence to remain undetected and perpetrate their abuse, while imposing a lifetime of suffering on their innocent victims.
