INTERVIEW

Please describe your artistic themes
My themes usually deal with struggle and ecstasy with a bit of sexual tension.

Please describe your creative process
If I’m working on someone’s  music video, I have to get to know them,  find out what makes them tick.  I  listen to their song over and over till I get a mental picture of what the video should look like. If its a photograph I know how I want the finished product to look.

What are your artistic goals?
My goal is to bring the world that is in my head out into this one.

What are your views on the industry?
Show business in general is hard. You have to fight for everything.  It’s like doing battle on a daily basis. However, it’s also very rewarding, if you stick to your guns.

What advice could you give to emerging artists?
Know what you want (from your artistic career). Be very specific.  Don’t ever doubt yourself – once you do, your dead.
