Rachel Pandza - Director/Producer
Rachel Pandza grew up in the quiet beach town of Ocean Beach, California, but a few miles from where she spent most of her summers at the boardwalk. All her life she had a lifelong passion for the arts. In searching for something that would satisfy her eclectic interests, she found music, theater, writing, painting, poetry and photography. Sparked by her high school theatre and film class where she participated in creating a play and directing a film, she went on to San Diego State University film program to pursue her love of the arts through filmmaking. It became an outlet for her creativity, her love for collaborating with others, and her want to improve the world through films. When Rachel heard about Andrew’s story, she also thought that his journey should be documented and shown to the world.
