I grew up in Montréal, Canada, but studied at the National Film Academy in Lodz, Poland where I graduated with an MFA honours. There, I sharpened my practice as a media artist. Since then, my pieces have been shown around Europe and in Canada at various venues including the Museum of Cinematography, Lodz, the Museum of Photography, Odense, Denmark and the Cinemathèque québecoise in Montréal. In 2011 I was invited by the Museum of Contemporary Art in Lodz (Muzeum Sztuki) to show my work along side celebrated Polish and international artists such as Stefan Themreson, Anri Sala, Dora Maurer and Michael Snow.

My artistic practice has been intertwined with an extensive career in documentary filmmaking.
