Born in Amsterdam in 1983.
After graduating as a Superior grade in Image, in 2007 I did a specialized course in photo-reportage at IDEP Barcelona. Then I had an opportunity to work as an assistant for various National Geographic photographers, thus getting a closer look into the work proceedings. From that time I started working at my own projects both photojournalism and travel photography. Gradually I’m becoming more interested in human stories away from the daily news and more related to my own view of life. Over the past four years I ‘ve won several prizes and have been awarded with scholarships like the “XIII International photojournalism meeting of Gijon”, the Magnum Photo Workshop scholarship with Chien-Chi Chang or the selection for Descubrimientos Photoespaña 2012. My pictures have been published in: Burn Magazine, Foto a Foto, Descobrir Catalunya, F-Stop Magazine, Piel de Foto, Disparo and Positive Magazine.
