I'm an actor, writer, director and designer. I'm really passionate about poetic cinema and production design. Some of the designers I really love are Victoria Paul, Sarah Greenwood, and Kristi Zea! Some of the directors that have inspired me are Ridley Scott, Maiwenn, John Cassavetes, Martin Scorsese, Lucrecia Martel, Rodrigo Garcia and Alejandro Inarritu, but of course many more! I am looking forward to connecting with other artists and members of the community at large.
