“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” – Confucius

From documentary features to launching campaigns, working in the visual medium is where my passion is. Here is a small collection of different mediums that I have worked across.

My goal is to collaborate with clients to create captivating stories that resonate with audiences.

Whether you are working on your feature documentary or launching the next big campaign if you are not using aesthetic, thought provoking storytelling you are not grabbing your viewers. From creating the perfect workflow to assembling the pieces together to tell your story, I will be there to help.  Regardless of the visual medium, I am with you every step of the way.
