To take my creative experience and all my ideas into the movie and games industry.

In 1994 I was introduced to the Sony PlayStation, from there I discovered a wide range of games, typically action and adventure I was amazed at what this machine could do and needed to figure a way how to get inside. But that was hard at the age of 5. In 1996, I was then introduced to the world of horror, with such games as Resident Evil and Silent Hill, it was at this point where my little mind realized that this was the industry was where I needed to be, I was 7 at the time.
