Since a young age, I have been inspired by the power and possibilities the medium photography has to offer. Magazines from National Geographic and LIFE were the source of motivation for me to start my own path in photography.In 2012 I changed from traditional to art education studying 'Audiovisual Arts' with specialisation in photography at VISO Mariakerke. In 2014 I graduated with High Distinction and at the same time finished a course in Basic Business Management.The following year I commenced a Bachelor Degree in Photography at Narafi in Brussels. As the course was mostly fashion and studio minded, I decided to change to University of the Arts London the year after. In 2018 I graduated with an Upper Second Class Honours Bachelor Degree in 'Photojournalism & Documentary Photography'.
Over the last three years, I travelled around the world and have grown experience in photographic storytelling. At the same time, I have been active shooting portraits, lifestyle and events.
In August 2018 I started working at theprintspace in Shoreditch London where I am part of the marketing team as well as curating and managing theprintspace Gallery.
