"Exploring characters and their headspace and expanding that world beyond the script and the wide range of decisions involved in creating new realities is what I love about the craft of production design. I see every opportunity to explore the range of emotion through architectural details, patterns, colours, lighting and furniture. My goal is to collaborate with filmmakers who want to push the boundaries of the imagination."
