The results of these labours often take beautiful and unexpected forms, be it commercials, installations, short films, music videos, title sequences, photography series, projection mapped sculptures, and various forms of graphic design.
A fascination with lush textures, light-play, and movement inform his unique image-making techniques, which range from utilizing programmable lighting arrays, projection mapping, robotic choreography, cymatic-driven material reactions, full-spectrum photography, and motion-controlled cinematography.
