Why do you think the world needs entertainment?
Entertainment is timeless. Captivating narratives are what brings people together.
Who is your creative inspiration?
It’s not necessarily a who, but I take a lot of inspiration from science, science fiction, and physics. String theory, alternate dimensions, space, and probability. These concepts open my world to a new extension of reality that peaks my curiosities, fears, emotions, and interests.
