What are you up to right now?

– Currently I am a full time photographer working on different contracted jobs.I am working on my own personal works too for exhibitions abroad. Sky is the limit.

 

What kind of videos make you go wow?

 

– Video’s that intrigue me most would be those that capture my cultural understanding of the world. Through different subcultures and global expressions. Videos that capture the most influential subcultures in my life. From hip hop music and the movement, to video’s that touch the subject of photography and skateboarding. I grew up with these three things, they moulded me into who I want to be or how I perceive life. I love carefully constructed video’s that have great cinematographic approach. An approach to real life, everyday magic is what keeps me inspired.

 

What’s your signature steeze as a Video Curator?

 

– My signature approach, I try to root out the video’s that don’t necessarily surface amongst mainstream social media outlets. Whether its music related or art related. If its worth sharing then I’m willing to share that same inspiration worldwide.

 

Tell us about your experience at Stocktown?

 

– My experience with Stocktown has been awesome. Always positive vibes and great feedback, a great community of curators and the drive for searching for something even more fascinating than the last video post is always great. When I first got news that I had made it to the Stocktown Team I was working in a cafe and I bugged out, I was incredibly stoked when Teddy had reached out to me with this ecstatic news and I had a celebration in the back of the kitchen I worked at. Since then its been nothing but great vibes! I’ve never been a fan of social media, but Stocktown provides a platform for a variety of interesting people from different backgrounds to be able to share videos that inspire them and more often than not the content published is Top Shelf.

What are you doing when you’re not doing anything?  

 

–  I’m never not doing anything. Inspiration and creation never sleeps.
