I am a Film Director, Video and Sound Editor, and VFX Artist. I also have a Ph.D. in computer science and consider myself a computer wizard. But my real passion is in filmmaking.

I have been shooting home movies on 8mm and Super8 film since as early as I could physically hold the camera – starting around elementary school – and I’ve been playing with video, photo and audio ever since.

In the last few years I’ve participated in a number of short films of different styles and flavors:
