This is something I’ve always wanted to do. Visual elements of motion picture have universal power of communication and they keep on evolving; and I want to take part in that evolution.

I’m also a member of the Clearwater Lions Club, a non-profit organisation that serves disadvantaged communities around the world. The club has national and international branches with a network of about 1.3 million men and women in 205 countries who work together to answer the needs that challenge communities all over the world.
