"The numerous foreign countries I stayed in during my childhood left me a profound mark, igniting my interest in travel and discovery.
My 4-year stay in Japan that totally immersed me in the japanese culture was decisive, giving me the chance to develop a strong sense for drawing and picture. I have designed objects during 15 years with special attention to quality and details. Since 2006, I'm a photographer. My personal pictures evoking daily life, urban landscapes and moods, produce graphical compositions, abstract and intimate."
