Founder & Festival Director
I am a documentary filmmaker and video artist. I also own a small video production company and I am an assistant professor for communication and digital media studies at the University of Houston Clear Lake. I hold an M.F.A. in photography and digital media and a B.A. in broadcast journalism and TV production, both from the University of Houston and have the equivalent of an M.A. from the Ludwigs Maximilians Universtaet in Munich in linguistics and literature.
In my video art I explore the subtleties of human perception, in my documentary work I focus on cultural and environmentally related subjects. I have screened both my video art and my documentary films internationally and have won several awards & prizes, not only for my artistic and documentary work, but also for my commercial work. I am a judge for the Telly Awards.
