Who are you, and what do you do?

I’m a filmmaker, bred on experimental animation (Rybczynski, McLaren, Svankmajer). I make films, music videos, and commercials with an experimental sensibility. I’m really into technical innovation, absurd ideas, and logic systems in film (x + y = z, but only when the meatloaf is ripe on a Tuesday). I live in LA.

What forms of media have influenced you the most?

The surreal yet completely logical worlds of author Haruki Murakami; the multi-layered, choral manipulations of time by Bobby McFerrin; the playful absurdity over virtuosic performance by Phish (soundtrack of my childhood).

What hardware / software do you use?

Apple/Adobe, but my #1 tool is TextEdit.

What would be your dream creative setup?

Trapped in an airplane seat, with Coke in my veins and the sky out my porthole, is where my best ideas appear.
