From my earliest years, I have loved painting, history, folklore, languages, and nature. Through animation I found a way to embrace them all. My work uses varied imagery – from cartoon to pure textural abstraction, unusual editing techniques, and carefully structured sound design to make human vulnerability, conflict, and history concrete and to convey a deeply personal aesthetic experience to viewers. 

My filmmaking has explored non-objective imagery, stories with unusual characters, and animation based on actual historical events. While covering a wide territory of content, I have tried to create a more precise “language” of animation forms.

Lives in Providence·RI, USA.
