In 2012, he designed and produced Songbird, a location-based narrative experience featuring live actors, short films, and an iOS app which debuted at the Singapore Arts Festival. He was also represented in Australia by production studio KICK KICK PUNCH, where he directed music videos and for clients such as the BBC World Service, Ford Motors and SAP.
