Creating positive, transformative, world-changing media

My mission is to join thoughtful citizens and other industry leaders to create positive, transformative, world-changing media. I truly believe that if enough people join together and shift their way of being and thinking, we will make a great leap for humankind; living from a perspective beyond the individual, recognizing that there is more to this world than what we know and that we are infinitely connected.

Our world needs life-changing, transformative media that has new media role models of all races, abilities, disabilities, ethnicities and religious backgrounds. For a change, it would be great to see others like us facing daily life challenges, what they learn from those challenges, and most importantly, how they can grow and overcome those challenges.

I am dedicated to creating media that inspires viewers and reminds them of their better selves. Every choice an individual makes can affect everyone around them in addition to our whole world. I believe that by creating more positive media, which at its core shows a healthier way of being and thinking, we can change our world.

“At the center of the universe is a loving heart that continues to beat and that wants the best for every person. Anything we can do to help foster the intellect and spirit and emotional growth of our fellow human beings, that is our job. Those of us who have this particular vision must continue against all odds. Life is for service.” – Fred Rogers
