Some of the titles that describes what I do would be motion creative director / animator / designer / live action director. In short, I develop creative ideas and execution for advertising and broadcast. I was born in Eritrea, raised in Sweden and currently living in Los Angeles, all of which informs my approach and style of work.
My skill set covers a range of disciplines from treatments, concept development, art direction, design and animation through full execution including visual effects and live action.
EXPERIENCE
Over the past 16 years I've creatively directed and designed numerous TV-network identity packages, commercials and promos across Europe and USA. I've directed award winning promos for HBO, Showtime and FX. Always with a hands-on approach, my passion for photography, live action, fashion and beauty is manifested in an eccentric mix of cultures and visual expression. And my background in visual effects tend to influence my work.
