I am Swiss based photographer and video maker born in 1990. I completed my apprenticeship as a carpenter in 2011, before spending several years working as a freelance interior designer, carpenter, and museum set constructor in New York, Sri Lanka, Papua New Guinea and other places.

In 2017 I was awarded with the Globetrotter World Photo grant what made my decision clearer to focus on my work as professional photographer. While assisting photographers in Switzerland, Germany, France and the United States of America I auto didactically learned the essentials of photography and trying to improve my skills continuously. I am based in Bern, Switzerland. I am co. founder of REFLEKT – the first Swiss based independent investigation research team. I am also a member of NEAR (Swiss association for contemporary photography) and NCCFN (network of fashion, art and cultural workers). Thanks NIKON Switzerland for the support.
