Digital Media and Filmmaking
My background as a scientist and filmmaker gives me a different approach to films. I understand the science language and love finding ways to make it interesting and engaging. Film is a great tool to share science, educate, or bring awareness about social or environmental issues. I work on educational, promotional, and scientific films. I also have experience producing live interactive shows or Live Dives accessible from mobile phones to the Giant Screen through the non-profit I co-founded, Fish Eye Project. Contact me for collaborations on scientific, environmental, adventure, and conservation topics.
Some examples of my past work:
Fish Eye Project is inviting you to go diving without getting wet. From iPhone to IMAX, you can see, hear, and interact with our team and the ocean in a very unique way.
You may notice a typo in the trailer... and if you do there is an interesting story behind it!! Ask me why.

Beach Observer is a citizen science tool that allows for observing, recording and monitoring of coastal wildlife, marine debris, pollution and more.
