About

I’m a people person and a team player at heart. I love to work together to create something greater than the sum of its parts. Solving complex creative and technical problems and sharing knowledge is crucial in my philosophy. I find joy in learning new things from others and teaching others, explaining concepts or helping to solve problems. I’ve often caught myself looking at the greater picture (processes/workflows) and thinking of ways to improve it or make it more efficient or user-friendly. I’m always keeping an eye on future developments. As a creative with a technical background I love to bridge the gap between technology and creativity. Someday I will be a VFX Supervisor.

I’m a big fan of arthouse/indie films and you will occasionally see me work on such projects in my free time.
