I shot my first film when I was 9 years old. I used my dad's Super 8 camera and 2 VHS readers to edit my films by pressing "play" on the left VHS, and "record" on the right VHS.

When I was little, I wanted to be an ophthalmologist (to see people's soul) or a marine biologist (to explore what we don't see).
