I'm an award-winning filmmaker and digital video pioneer. Currently living in Beijing, China, I spent the past 15 years in Europe where I began my career as a filmmaker.
While the theft of my hard-earned camera gear in a Paris train station temporarily detoured by goals as a filmmaker, it was the death of Mark Foo that launched me back into the world of film and television.
To honor Mark, I brought Mark's surf TV show, H3O TV to Europe. It became the first-ever action sports program to grace European TV screens. Mark always said that he loved surfing so much that he wanted to show as many people as possible what a wonderful thing surfing was. He felt television was the best way to do this.
Since then, I have gone on to write, produce and direct numerous action sports films and videos as well as short films, music videos and video art projects outside of the action sports world.
I've had the opportunity to live in work in some of the world's most beautiful places: Hawai'i, Los Angeles, Vienna, Biarritz, Paris and Beijing. I've learned to speak German, French and am currently (re-)learning Chinese. I've had the chance to meet countless wonderful people and experience life to its fullest.
My goal is to continue to create works that allow me to express myself freely and passionately.
