'Doing a documentary is about discovering, being open, learning, and following curiosity.'
Subscribing to this belief while maintaining the highest level of production value is a challenging proposition for any filmmaker but, one that Alastair relishes.
Alastair currently lives in Tsawwassen, British Columbia, with his wife and two daughters.
