Film and Moving Image
I bring with me a wealth of over a decades experience as creative director, director and art director, working within the advertising, entertainment and music industries.
During this time I honed my skills at making stories and brands vibrant, credible and simple on projects for commercials, branded content, digital and film.
Today, I uniquely combine these experiences with my immersive technology practice.
