My journey as a storyteller was inspired by childhood trips with my mountaineer grandfather, who introduced me to the wonders of the natural world, while sharing tales of the people and places from his adventurous life. He sparked in me a curiosity for travel, respect for different cultures and a strong desire to protect the environment.

As a documentary photographer, my personal work explores the close relationship between people and place. I have been working in the Western Balkans since 2013, when I first came to the region and discovered there was far more here than the stereotypes of war, ethnic divisions and the disarray of post-communism. Since then I have been sharing stories that shed light on the beauty of the Balkans, its unique cultural heritage, pristine environments and the struggle to preserve all three.

I have been pleased to work with a range of NGOs, editorial and commercial clients including: Patagonia, Reuters, Vice, Die Zeit, Le Monde, Libération, De Standaard, Nieuwe Revu, Huck Magazine, The World Health Organization, The Calvert Journal, SUITCASE, Point.51, Trip Advisor, Eco Albania, Euronatur, Riverwatch, and Culture Trip.
