  • Animator, director, horror film connoisseur, coffee addict and film fact lover.

    I'm interested in using both live action and stop motion animation techniques to explore the more deep rooted and emotionally complex aspects of life.

    "I couldn’t turn the Prince away, and the world comes (thrusts in) behind him,
    I couldn’t move the mountain man, stop the wind from blowing, or hide the mountain, 
    I couldn’t stop the air from being so clear."

    – Sister Clodagh, Black Narcissus, Powell & Pressburger, 1947
