I love films that trigger critical thinking, bring humor and are a joy to watch. This is what I look for in my work. I believe in the power of storytelling; the aesthetics of my films are carried by the content. Social issues captivate me and I seek a logical but emotional approach. I thrive on exploring beyond my comfort zone, keenly observing my surroundings, and finding the comic in the tragic. My work is about questioning, challenging and bringing down borders.
