Production Safety Passport

After spending over a decade in the advertising industry as an Art Director and Animator, I want to better comprehend and improve my confidence with live-action filming and its associated process in order to further the development of my artistic and professional ambition into something that I believe in.

I am passionate about film and storytelling and want to be able to demonstrate my worth and improve my capacities in the art department team of a film production.

I am very keen to acquire and to practise new skills and am not afraid of new challenges.

While cultivating my love for interior design and theatre I also appreciate art in every of its forms and try to gain as much different skills as possible and broaden my range of experiences.

I also believe that travelling is a fundamental learning and discovery instrument. An essential part for the unearthing of new cultures, creative styles, and the arousal of new ideas and new ways of looking at things.
