About me

I am a dreamer, a generator of ideas (especially past midnight), a strategic creative mind and a compulsive perfectionist rehabilitating through wabi-sabi. I create handmade collages, take photographs, write and constantly push myself to learn new, scary skills. At this moment, I am learning how to make engaging podcasts, how to work with sound and how to build up a business that leaves plenty of room for experimentation. I am actively looking for freelance collage work and full-time work in media production: online radio/podcasting, and online/independently printed magazines.
