About Me

Camping - British Columbis

Demeanor

As a professional, I am flexible, resourceful and reliable. I am equally comfortable leading as I am taking direction. I am calm, clear minded and quick thinking when in challenging and hostile environments and I have developed the ability to improvise solutions in any situation, no matter how dire. I welcome challenges and pride myself on my ability to bring all projects to the best possible outcome in the most efficient manner.

The Arts

I have always been interested in the arts and my artistic pursuits to date are varied and vast. I started drawing and painting in the primary grades and discovered that I excelled in this field. By the time I entered high school, I knew that I would have a full career in the arts.  I went on to study at the Ontario College of Art & Design, presently, OCAD University. There, I explored illustration, advertising, graphic art, photography, animation, video and film. I am also a self-taught musician and am highly tuned in to the impact of audio tracks on movies and film. I graduated with a major in film making but attribute my success in this field to my broad artistic foundation.

Travel

Machu Picchu, Peru

While my passions in life are broad, I am especially inspired by social justice, adventure travel, the natural world and portrayals of the human condition. Making documentary film allows me to explore all of these avenues. I’m drawn to the lesser-known corners of the world and seek out authentic experiences and genuine encounters that are typically inaccessible to the average tourist.
