“I couldn’t be more excited than to be working with AfterShock. As creators, we strive to find conditions where we are supported with trust and patience, while at the same time we are able to rely on experienced professionals to guide us along the path. I’m privileged to have enjoyed a long career in this business, but I feel like I’m just getting started. AfterShock is a creative breath of fresh air, and one that I intend to fully support over the long haul.”
