"I'm licensed to sail and scuba dive. I've bungee jumped until my pockets were empty, jumped from airplanes, played on a rugby team and danced ballet. I've rolled on skateboards and roller skates, sliced a few lakes on a mono ski, powdered my nose on a snowboard, broken a sweat on a horse back and faithfully continue to follow  my heart. I speak three languages, rock climb, produce films, edit, do sound design and compose music. I'm currently shooting a number of projects, all of them challenging pieces. And that's a good thing since challenges are my tool of choice for personal growth."
