“I am committed to film as a means of expression and instruction. In a visually dominated society, I believe in the importance of studying and understanding images and the media critically. In my academic curricula, I familiarized with Cultural Anthropology, its methods and practice. Visual Anthropology provided me with tools to approach new research projects and critically think about visual cultures. Lastly, theory of montage inspired my camera style tremendously. My aim is to serve as an instructor of hands-on camera as well as the theory of images.
