Resume Resume

The life of an artist can often be isolated and cold. I fight to remain unattached to my work as a video editor, because of the inevitable threat of a client's email entitled REVISIONS. In addition, I am always searching for ways to maintain a social and creative balance. RELEASE is my key to freedom. It has granted me access to an outstanding number of new people, and it allows me to safely give myself to a cause without fear of anything being discarded. Furthermore, this project has become my loudspeaker to promote the benefits of using art as a form of powerful self-expression and unification.
