My first short credit goes back to 2008. Working with From The Shadows LTD. It was short called 'The Blood Beach'. A mix between The Lost Boys and TombRaider. I was asked to act but knowing I had a camera I was also asked to start taking some behind the scenes images for the production.

In 2013 I reunited with a friend who was working with Sundance Institution. It was to be another short, and another horror. This time the opposite happened. I was asked to come on board as a stills photographer, then my roles doubled as one of the male cast pulled out at last minute. I stepped up and took the acting spot. We were pressed and shot the complete thing in a single weekend, well except one scene.
In 2014, Director and writer Olga Matkovska took the film to Cannes short film festival. It won best horror.
