Like many directors with a background in editing, he brings a unique storytelling style to his films.
Witnessing his Croatian family endure the violent war years of the early 1990s in former Yugoslavia, by his early 20s, Leon had developed a keen interest in conflict resolution and began to seek peace in his inner life, avidly exploring religious and spiritual ideas and pathways for self-transformation which would come to inspire and inform his work.
Today Leon is dedicated to awakening inner peace within other people, in order to participate in creating a more harmonious environment for all.
