I was never really able to choose. I was trained to be an architect, but always felt the urge to write. I wanted to spend my days in the bakery, but at the same time, I wished to be in the studio, the restaurant, the world. As meandering as my path may seem, it is by a common desire that all these acts and aspirations are bound: a desire not just to experience beauty - in appearance, flavour, light and space - but also, in documenting it, to bring a new dimension of it back into the world.

As a freelance writer, photographer and stylist, I celebrate the diversity of my background by creating written as well as visual stories about food, culture and architecture. My work is characterised by a natural and down to earth approach, a minimal, yet warm aesthetic, and an eagerness to understand.
