I am a Belgian photographer currently based in Sydney. I work on a diverse range of subjects dealing with documentary photography, street photography, fine art, and photojournalism. I am exploring storytelling through photography in order to shed light on the manifold aspects of life.

I have a Masters degree in English and German literature, and in literary translation. I have travelled extensively in South East Asia, lived four years in the Philippines, and three years in Australia.

I have exhibited my work in Australia, Belgium, France and Myanmar.
