About me

London based artist and moving image and videographer. My film-video works have been screened at film and video festivals both in the national and international platforms. The taste for exploring movement in filmmaking began, having been previously a dancer and performer on the stage and fringe theatre. Film and video work have become inherent in the art form and the medium, belonging naturally. My platform, Danceartprojects this an approach to demystifying the art and contents form, with choreographic moving image process. I make films, and video contents to embrace this communication medium and with this thinking, I dare to dream and create. PRESS & RECOGNITIONS Honorable mentioned Norway 2003, Mandal district Lindesnes and the Fedrelandsvennen. American Dance Festival, dance symposium 2007, Scotland - mentioned and one of selected video for the symposium.
