About me


I am an aspiring advertising creative with a handful of skills that prove I can produce any kind of visual content. I also have an extensive digital marketing experience with a focus on social media and branding. As a freelancer, I like to photograph people while telling their own stories or showing what they love to do. My passions are visual art, music, and dance and because of that you will also see me documenting moments at events involving these. I like to tell the story of your brand, your people, or cool things you’re doing with your team, through images and videos.
