About me

I am a graduated documentary working effectively with others but I am also competent in leading and motivating a team to efficiently achieve innovative and polished results. I am an highly self-motivated person who works well on own initiative to achieve desired goals and demonstrates enthusiasm for the development of new ideas and concepts. Pushed by the desire to influence people through photography and art I built an extensive knowledge working with agencies, magazines, festivals, museums, schools.
