Welcome to my website and thanks for your interest in my profile.
I received my first analogue SLR (a Canon EOS 500 which I still sometimes use today) when I was around fourteen or fifteen, however, my father gave me my very first camera (a purple, pink and green point-and-shoot) for my tenth birthday. So taking pictures has been my passion for quite some time – although it has waxed and waned over the years…
…which is why when it came to chosing a university degree, I went for something completely different, so I ended up completing a BA in French and Politics at Queen Mary University of London, followed by an MSc in European Identities from the London School of Economics. After graduating in 2007, I held a number of jobs in NGOs, market research and – most recently – in higher education: I have worked for a private university in Berlin since 2010, and still do.
It’s a cliché, but Berlin inspired me to want to take up a creative sideline, so I first started taking guitar lessons but soon found that I lacked talent (although I do still take lessons!), so I went back to my old hobby of photography. I took a class in Digital Photography with Ann-Christin Jansson at Photocentrum Gilberto Bosques in Berlin-Kreuzberg. Since early 2016, I have been participating in a seminar at the Ostkreuzschule (also in Berlin) with Sibylle Fendt.
