Please tell us about your art.
I am a Cinematographer also called Director of Photography. I paint with the light and dance with the camera while translate the words of a screenplay, content or any projects to visuals. My visual work expresses the emotions though storytelling and shows the state of mind of the characters while unraveling feelings to give something beyond the expectations. Every frames, lights, camera movements has a meaning tied to a message. The inspiration is to create art while having the audience flow with meaningful images.

What do you think is the biggest challenge facing artists today?
The biggest challenge is to be always constant and inspired.
