Director Statement

I am a designer, creative director, and illustrator by trade - however, my creative interests extend far beyond these roles. In my professional practice, I am tasked with achieving predetermined objectives and providing solutions. In my personal artistic pursuits, I am drawn to explore the questions, allowing them to take me wherever they lead. Documentary filmmaking, in particular, has always resonated with me due to its aptitude for this kind of open-ended exploration.
