[Born in: Canada / Live in: Canada / Male]

I create video installations to explore the autobiography and the narrative potential of new media. By juxtaposing narrative devices found in other media such as literature, comic books, videogames and music, I am progressively creating a narrative structure that reflects my past, personality and influences. By revisiting my childhood misinterpretations, I can gradually pose questions to the audience about my upbringing while connecting my experience to their own. It is in this connection where I find my purpose for making autobiographical work, allowing me to develop new relations in order to gain a further understanding of how I came to be.
