My films often alternate between narrative, story driven work and abstract, expressive work. I follow my instincts, I know what I like but I’m open to where it will take me. Whether I’m searching through video archives, collaborating with writers or actors, or experimenting with abstractions of light, to me it is all the same process of discovery. My starting points are varied, sometimes it’s a technique I want to try out, sometimes it’s a competition I’ve entered, sometimes it’s a theme I want to examine.
I’m comfortable in the abstract realm, to me it’s a more open form of communication and leaves space for personal interpretation. Working in a fluid away, I often use a range of techniques to break down the filmic image, such as painting or scratching on film or distorting the image by shooting through custom lenses and found objects. The results of chance and the accidental are key elements of what drives me to continue to experiment. I enjoy the creation process, that's why I’m making stuff all the time, to some extent it doesn’t matter what it is. I learn from doing and I want to push myself. Ideas form as I create and in turn I hope my work sparks ideas for someone else.
