I like to think that my professional journey started in my room when I watched “Once Upon a Time in America” for the first time ever when I was a child. It’s definitely not the usual kids movie but I was particularly struck by it and I’ve watched it countless times ever since. Growing up I got into painting, classical music, sculpture, literature and most of all architecture which became the art I felt more of a connection with, probably because my parents worked as interior designer and restorer. It guides my way of thinking and perceiving things even after I then chose visual storytelling as my career.

I enjoy observing the world around me without being seen, and that’s why it comes natural to me to tell a story through my eyes. As the actors are asked not to look into the camera when they’re filming on set, I ask you to not look at me.
