I’m Canadian; I was raised in Vancouver and  I lived for  awhile in Toronto – and I LOVE Toronto – but Van is my home town.

Mysterious Vancouver

I make art, I make films and I write books about how cinema (and moving image work in general) is influenced by Art. That means I’m interested in scenography, cinematography, production design, VFX etc.

For a while now I’ve been based in Shoreditch, East London but my work takes me all over the place: Germany, Russia, Spain, Egypt, Switzerland – you name it. I’m always pretty much packed and ready to go.

My interest in history has taken me into both documentary film-making, short films and artists’ video. Much of my work explores historical events or places.

I write about art and film.
