Artist Statement

I am a filmmaker currently residing in Vancouver, Canada. Visual storytelling is what I am passionate about. Telling stories from my perspective, my thoughts, my dreams, as well as sending my audience messages that I want to convey means the world to me. What drives my motivation are my dreams and my experiences. Ever since I could remember, I have had dreams every night, occasionally mixing them up with reality. Often, the combination of the two can spark great film ideas. While the style of my work can lean towards either the quirky or thrilling side, I am heavily influenced by Wes Anderson and nostalgia.
