Approach

Although I am primarily a broadcast and film designer and my artistic background has afforded me a broader outlook into other aspects of society. It has also exposed me to the world of advertising and the philosophies and skills that come along with it. The combination of learning to tell meaningful stories and deliver necessary information through visuals is central to film. I was taught that a 'well directed' film was one that required no sound. The viewer should be able to turn the volume down and still follow the story. This is the core of my philosophy. And through this philosophy I represent myself as a talented designer with years of proven experience, a solid story teller, and an artist with fresh ideas.
