Overview

I have spent the early part of my career in producing, directing and animating independent live action and experimental animated short films. My work has been featured around the world, including Clermont-Ferrand International Film Festival and Cleveland International Film Festival just to name a few. Having worked with IMAX SANDDE (Stereoscopic Animation Drawing Device) in partnership with the National Film Board of Canada’s Hothouse Program in 2011, my focus on immersive and interactive storytelling led to the creation of experimental works featured on Intel and Vice Magazine’sThe Creators Project: Technology and the Brightest Young Minds in Music, Art, Film and Design. A graduate of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design Film Academy ‘10, my involvement with NSCAD University's, Cineflux, began soon after my degree, leading the development of a geocaching video app titled, Narratives App to be released in late 2016.
