About

I am a brand director, art director, designer and artist. Movement was my first language and dance my earliest art. As a dancer, you endeavor to give the audience something to think about after the show. With everything I create visually, be it for a brand or for my personal practice, I am concerned with giving the audience something to think about after the show.
