About me

I am a driven, creative and adaptable media professional with a passion for pushing the boundaries of storytelling with new technologies. In having a film-making background I have used my prior skills and knowledge to develop a unique style in capturing and directing virtual reality based experiences. I am now currently working with WeMakeVR to create original content for an ever-expanding pool of clients across all different market sectors. I have an advanced understanding in strereoscopic 360 capture with various camera systems and how this translates into the post-production workflow. In November 2015 I directed my first VR Experience - Project Orpheus in partnership with the ACIN, MediaLab Amsterdam, AVRO-TROS, NL Film, WeMakeVR and AMP Amsterdam. The project won bronze at the Dutch VR Awards and received multiple nominations at the Bright Awards . Since then I have worked on a range of productions in different capacities from director, cinematographer, post production supervisor and travelling globally to deliver the highest standard of virtual reality cinematic content. Ashes to Ashes - Winner of the best cinematic experience at the Dutch VR Awards Screened at film festivals worldwide including Cannes Film Festival and Shanghai Film Festival. Tommy Hilfiger Spring Virtual Runway - Displayed at Paris Fashion Week If you are interested in pursuing a production in 360/VR then head on over to www.wemakevr.com to get in contact.
