About me

I create Branded VR/360 experiences that push 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. In the past year I have been a part of some big projects for companies like; ING, Tommy Hilfiger, Massive Music and Nestle.
