I am a student, artist, and photographer currently living in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. My interests range from photography to technology. I am also interested in music and movies.

I am a very visual person, I always have been. As a creator I strive to produce larger than life visuals that forces the viewer to question what they are looking at. I play in the realms of Photography and Film with the assistance of the Adobe Creative Cloud I am able to express my artistic vision.

What drives me is my need to share what my mind produces. My imagination allows me to generate 'frames' and in turn I make it my duty to bring those 'frames' to life. With this asset I dream of working in Hollywood, specifically the Visual Effects Industry. I wish to see my 'frames' on the big screen next to my name. I knew I wanted to do this when watching the visual effects in Game of Thrones and Ex Machina, these films inspired me to use the skillset I have to further expand and produce visually appealing content.

All my life I've been told to dream big and that is exactly what I'm doing. I do not wish to be the next "Allan McKay" or "Steve Kullback". I wish to be myself with influence from my idols. What makes me unique isn't my access to fancy equipment or my prior theoretical knowledge, what makes me unique is my eye for aesthetic. Nobody can replicate what I envision.

In order to achieve my goal I've been going out everyday taking pictures and shooting footage and editing it in a aesthetically appealing way. This act of discipline is not only solidifying my work ethic but also strengthening and exercising my scope of imagination. I plan to intern at Toronto based TRICON film studio and VICE in order to establish a name and gain valuable work experience.
