For many years I've been a choreographer/dancer as well as a special effects software developer and artist for the film and video industries. In my mind the two disciplines are closely related. I see the entire world as a source of form and movement for both dance and visual effects. The movement qualities of a successful dance work are often useful in creating visual effects work, and vice-versa. The challenge I present to myself is to craft pieces that combine his visual effects work and dance work; but more importantly, to create pieces that show the ethereal connections that can exist between the two.
