About

I specialise in 2D animation and film direction with strong storytelling and editing skills. I am also a musician experienced in sound recording and sound design. I am looking for projects with an interesting background that focus on creative storytelling. I would also be thrilled to work with musicians to help them add a visual dimension to their songs.
