Director Biography

Director Statement

Inspired since childhood by Ron Fricke’s time-lapse films (Chronos, Baraka), I seek ways to portray stories through visuals and soundtrack alone. Drawing on my career as an editor, I assemble and build visual stories in After Effects. During this process, I compose original music inspired by the in-progress shots. Colors and shapes translate into instrumentation and textures, and the resulting music often takes the visual arc in unexpected directions. My goal is to strike a compelling balance between sound and image—a reflection on the attraction of opposites.
