KH: The Bug is a great neighborhood theater. Perfect for this event giving it an intimate feel.

KH: I am honored to be selected and feel this is really a great organization.

Q: Tell us one unique thing about you and/or your movies?
KH: There are so many things that make a film and the director unique. I like to use interesting dynamic shots as tools, not only focusing on the actor but the surroundings and what It means for the story, weather it be foreshadowing or a significant meaning of an object that ties the story together. I always make the audience think and wonder and piece it together themselves.

Q: What else are you working on?
KH: Right now I’m working on a Women’s Shoe Commercial.

Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
