Growing up in Eastern Europe with a mix of national, ethnic, linguistic and cultural identities made me forever interested in looking beyond stereotypes and easy answers. I’ve switched careers, lived in 5 countries and am fluent in 4 languages. Forever fascinated by the world of ideas, I have degrees in several social sciences.
I got into photography in 2005 and into filmmaking in 2015 through the world of documentary, drawn to the power of visual storytelling in conveying the complexities that words can not.
I am captivated by stories that examine identity, belonging, normative questions in relationships between individuals, between individual and society, and between people and the planet.
