Hi, I'm Gatz.
My mission is to cultivate empathy. I believe in honoring stories by giving truth, authenticity and emotional impact. Whether I'm working overseas or in country, I witness the resilience of the human spirit. Nothing drives me stronger than living proof that humanity still exists. Perhaps more than ever today, there is a tremendous need to keep that humanity alive. But none of us can do this alone. Let's create together.
