I’m here to explore more projects to be hired to direct or to join as a writer/co-writer. I’m quite open to interesting projects in general but would have a preference for Psychological Thrillers, Magic Realism and other genres. However, if it’s a meaningful project, I’m open to it regardless of genre.
