Even tie between Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Lost in Translation.

What led you to work in this field? Or someone who inspired you in your career?
I was in love with the 1933 King Kong as a child. Thanks to that film (and later Jurassic Park) I became obsessed with giant monsters and wanted to be a director when I grew up. That eventually led me to animation school, which led me to compositing.

Nothing beats kindness.

What kind of coffee / hot drink do you like?
Whatever coffee is available, can’t start the day without it. Usually with a bit of milk, no sugar. Ok, sometimes sugar.
