  Hello! I am a theatrical and cinematic scenographer working as set and lighting designer. I am inspired by the nature, life and history. "Simple is the hardest." But it's also the most beautiful thing, I am enthused in simplistic, cubism.

   I've worked on variety scales of shows in indie, corporate, collaborated with artists in Canada, the United Kingdom and China. I love to connect with the work, the play, the script. My design is not only visual art, it is an experience in which the spectator becomes emotionally invested in through the storytelling journey.

  I am drawn to work that harnesses the vigour of the political realities of our world and creates communities by bring people together. I am a believer in the power of the presentation of community based stories,  and I am compelled to unite people through my work. Theatre and design has always been the light of my life. I would like to be a part of more work that develops and serves communities and draws people into theatre to experience what I experience.
