Charged is a feature length documentary film following the story of my best friend/business partner Chef Eduardo Garcia.

Before Eduardo was injured we were working on an outdoor cooking show concept so I was use to filming him, and even though it was a tough time, I decided to keep filming throughout his ICU stay and recovery. This amassed a library of footage that shows the raw nature of injury and recovery, we hope that 'Charged' will inspire people to overcome their set backs and fully immerse themselves back into life.
I was initially going to be a producer on the documentary having sparked the plan for the film and having filmed all of the hospital footage. However, I was kicked off the production team (in the best way ever) when Director Phillip Baribeau decided that he wanted to also document my role as the caregiver, so I then stepped away from the production side of things and became a subject of the documentary.
