Getting to know me
As you look through the pages of my site, you’ll get a feeling of one common thread connecting the dots across all of my projects and services aiming to raise questions of self-discovery and identification (individual or collective).
The reason for it is my own identity crisis that happened several years ago splitting my life in before and after. Ever since then I have re-purposed everything I do to serve the idea of helping other people find their way, feel confident in their own skin and be fearless about following their heart.
"I am a student of human nature and that translates into everything I do."
Possessing and embracing your true power should be an effortless state of being. In other words, you don't need to be extra, push yourself and pretend in order to prove or manifest your own uniqueness.
Whether through my photography, coaching sessions, art projects or collaborations I'd like to empower you to seek your own voice and its unique expression in life, and really own it.
Conversation is one of the main instruments in my tool box for it allows me to connect with people faster and on a more profound level, use my intuition and focus to "see" without being intrusive and invasive.
I have always believed there is something incredibly human in the desire of one person to get to know another. And the more i think about our world the more I realize we need to spend more time practicing being real humans in order to succeed in this digital age.
