I studied film and film production while earning a degree in languages and literature. I also volunteered on student and local film projects.
The height of my filmmaking career was around 2010 when I co-produced an experimental short film and a feature-length documentary.
I don't have plans to pursue filmmaking at the moment but I still spark a new idea every now and then and remain open to new opportunities.
