I wanted to be an archeologist, going around the world, discovering new artefacts. Then, I got interested in film, since I was curious to know more about this mysterious power film can have on people. And in 2003, star war kids was seen on the internet. So I got interested in this smaller screen. And did a master on how short film can be distributed on the web. By then, I was hooked on research and technology and thinking differently and breaking new grounds.
