I have always been into art. In fact it is my love for art which brought me to study design and live theatre production. I learnt great skill in building sets and props, but I also found a deeper understanding of films during this time. Even though my love for studying films has always been there, I became more involved with all aspects of film creation, from story boards to post production.
But I love filming & editing most of all. I enjoy showing others my view, my vision and being behind the camera gives me the chance to do this. Not only can film reach out across the world but it also gives you the chance to work with people who have the same dreams and goals, no matter where they live. I have always loved the thought that by capturing something on film it makes a point in time permanent; giving the power to watch the footage over and over, and relive it.
