Turning Point - A Short Film

“There was an emptiness, a void. Through the pain, suffering, heartache and darkness that I was experiencing I would begin to see a glimmer of light years later. A light that only grew brighter and from it I saw that what was my greatest loss was also my greatest gift.”

Here is part of my story of how a significant loss in my life was turned into a gift of which changed the way I would live my life forever. The courage to pick up the pieces, get back on my feet, pursue my dreams and will them into action. Life had new meaning, time is our most precious commodity and I had plans to use it wisely and effectively with hopes of inspiring others to live free.

A heartfelt thank you to the team at Inmist Media House for capturing my story, this is a masterpiece, the art of storytelling with such passion and attention to detail. It was back on the first day of summer in 2014 that RJ and Dawson would capture our wedding day, in what was the best day ever! Fast forward over five years later and we were reunited as both were asked to capture my story thanks to the team at Natera Sport. Bryan and Craig are the Co-Founders of Natera Sport and believed in me, my story and what I stood for. With similar values and vision we began this new journey together. They have supported me in my dreams of pursuing life as an endurance athlete and I’m eternally grateful.
