My life began in Bath, UK on a hot summer’s day many moons ago. Thanks to my parents I grew up with an inquisitive mind and a passion for tales of lands far away. Now based in London I spend my time photographing people... here, there and everywhere.
I'm always looking for the beauty in imperfection and for where a certain essential energy shines through. I am intrigued by the poetic character of people, by the small and seemingly unimportant things. I like to carry my camera with compassion and curiosity.
