I’m a documentary and portrait photographer living in Dortmund, Germany.
Through my photo-essays, I seek to explore how people develop their identities and are shaped by their communities and histories. I aim to offer an alternative and surprising perspective in order to encourage a more deeper examination and foster better mutual understanding.

I’m a founding member of DOCKS Collective and have a BA in photography from the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Dortmund.

Based in Dortmund/GER and available for assignments.
