About Me

I studied cinema in faculty and I'm trying to be a filmmaker and express my ideas. Creativity is a big thing for me, and part of I want to do in life is creating and expressing myself, and cinema is the medium that created a bigger connection with me, the whole language of it, is beautiful. I do love music and literature and painting, it's just that cinema had this bigger impact on me and I see it as a great tool for empathic connection and learning.

Other than that, I'm here for learning, about people and their inner worlds. Because one way to discover ourselves is through other people and through their own unique perceptions. And when we meet someone new, we expand our knowledge and our way of think and to perceive the world.
