I attended film school in 2011 and then started working professionally in the Canadian film industry. From working directly on set as a crew member, to working on retail assisting production crews, renting and teaching industry professionals about specialized equipment.
I worked on multiple AAA Hollywood films, and dozens of independent and smaller films as well, from gripping and gaffing all the way to the camera department, 3rd AC, 2nd AC, 1st AC and Cam Op.
Even did some editing, VFX, compositing, tracking, keying, 3d tracking, you name it. I love making films and I love cinema, but after almost a decade of working in the film industry, I needed a break. I needed change in my life.
Change Of Course
In 2019, I decided to leave the film industry and travel the world. More specifically move to Japan, and street photography was just a way for me to combine exploration and discovery with my creative drive and process.
Cinema will always have a special place in my heart and will always inspire my creative process. I'm a Cinephile, so I approach my creative work from the perspective of cinema, even photography.
After my year abroad, I wanted to focus on travelling, exploring, and capturing the essence of the world, as well as sharing my experiences and knowledge with other people, helping others grow and live a more creative and productive life.
Starting a YouTube channel was the thing that scared me all these years, but at some point, regret forces you to take action and just commit to the idea. It's better to try and fail than to not try at all and be consumed by regret.
