design for theatre and film

Before I enter the theatre world, I was a filmmaker and animator for many years. I wrote, directed and designed my own short films.

Most of them truly reflected how I saw the world around me at that particular moment in life. After graduated from BA moving image course at Central Saint Martins in London, I started to help other people to visualize their stories.I freelanced as set, costume and projection designer in London for about two years, before I enrolled MFA Design course at YALE SCHOOL OF DRAMA.
