“I find it remarkable how, with this overload of information, some of us still fail to see that we’re all in this shit together and we all just might be secretly seeking the same thing: that unique, unmarked, unchecked brick on the wall where we can tag : I WAS HERE.”

His work has also been featured in various short film festivals through Please, Breathe Lucy (28th Clermont-Ferrand Short Film Market, Toronto’s Wild Sound Festival, and Montreal’s Mascara and Popcorn Film Festival) and Der Untermensch (2013 Festival de Cannes’ Film Market and Short Film Corner, the Fantasia Film Festival, and the Toronto International Film Festival).
