“We are the ones we’ve been waiting for!” – That quote brought to me a new sense of hope and responsibility towards the future we face, but even more important, towards the present we live in. I envision using the powerful language of media and video to reveal stories, secrets and hidden knowledge to the widest audience possible. That’s why even though I am passionate about new technologies I always go back to basics: the stories that connect us and relate us to the understandings and possibilities of creating a life in balance with our dreams and our surroundings.”
