About Me


To spread beauty.


I am a creative adventurer, and use my camera as a tool for socio-anthropological explorations. I have been told I have a mellow temperament. I am thoughtful and caring, and I can also be silly and goofy once you get to know me. My prized possession is my dual-citizenship with Europe and the US. Currently I am working with the audio-visual collections at the International Center of Photography in NYC.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


In 2009 I met two of the most fantastic people through couchsurfing. Those experiences made me a believer and I love the beautiful experiences that open up to us through the practice.


My favorite thing to do when I visit a foreign country is to check out the food markets. I am a very passionate music-lover and I've always loved to sing. Dogs make me smile and I usually must stop and pet them. Cats, not so much. Photography and documentary storytelling are my life at the moment.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Swimming in natural hotsprings in Colorado outside on a January night as snow fell on my face.
