About Me

Director. Cinematographer. Filmmaker.
I worked my way  from Theatre Actor to Key Grip to Gaffer to Cinematographer to Director. The art of creating new worlds, exploring the characters that live in it and documenting their lives is my reason for getting up in the morning.

Open and bold, observant, enthusiastic and exciting.
