I work with cinematic language in exploration of its embodied affect and resemblance to the dreams in the experience of cinema spectatorship there. I like to turn things inside out and illustrate the unseen. I play in the space between figurative and abstract to create brainteasers we understand enough to want to put it together, but the elements never quite add up. The viewer is encouraged to question my absurd and surrealist propositions, as I propose films that avoid fixed meanings preferring the divisive and ambiguous. I work in-between spaces looking to bring subvert perceived binaries such as biological/digital, inside/outside, mind/body, material/conceptual, attraction/disgust. The resulting projects are stylized, saturated, camp, visceral and psychedelic films.
I work and live in Montreal and have been dedicated to the cinematic arts since 2012. In 2015, the short screenplay Parasite was selected among 105 submissions to participate in Cours Écrire ton Court where it won the prize of best English language screenplay. In 2016, Magic Fish won the audience award for best short film at the Boston Underground Film Festival.
