About me

Me in a nutshell: "Help I'm in a nutshell!" I am a Photographer & Creative. My passion in life is creativity and to defy expectations, to push past any hurdle to learn and achieve something beautiful. That's why I am drawn to the unusual, the less common, the disruptive. I'm proud of my nerd tendencies so feel free to start a conversation about philosophy, the potential A.I takeover or science fiction anytime. Or even better let's make some work inspired by it? I'm also passionate about the environment, gender equality, diversity, cinema, TV and health/medicine (as in I like to learn about it and somewhat try to be healthy, don't be fooled- I love brownies and I don't do green smoothies.) It's cliche and easy to say, hard to do, but I want to change the world. If I can create work that makes the world a tiny bit better even for a day then I'm happy.
