I also perform electronic music under the moniker "Kristachuwan". I've performed with many different acts across the North East. I do live video manipulations for other musician's performances as well. Live video mixing with pre-recorded clips, live-feed, and custom visual effects I've created in Isadora & After Effects.

SpecialityI specialize in creating animated music videos, and VFX. I create my own VFX in Final Cut Pro and After Effects and clip them together as visual metaphors and textures that have a conceptual continuity with the music. I also enjoy taking the video clips and mixing them live with a digital patch-bay I've created in Isadora, if I'm performing live with the musician.
