I directed a team of 78 artists in parallel across 17 different countries speaking 7 different native languages. I was able to motivate artists from across the globe to come together and create this animated short film that rivals the quality of a film from a big studio, but without utilizing a standard “mainstream” look.
Was been accepted into 70 festivals worldwide, won best in category 7 times, and nominated 14 other times. Here are some of our awards.

“Metro6” follows Zak, a soulless character who doesn’t know the true sense of community. He’s so absorbed in the technology in front of him that he doesn’t notice the rich community around him. It was never Zak’s intention to take the bus on this fateful day, but the lessons he learns on his adventurous bus ride are both unexpected and deeply important.
Having grown up in San Francisco, I first started riding public transit alone at 8 years old. Being exposed to so many people of different races, sexualities, professions, and personalities in such small spaces helped to shape me into the person I am today.
Creating this film, we’ve established our own community. 78 artists collaborated in parallel across 17 different countries.
