About Me

The sparkling indulgence of pop culture and the mid-class bubble of parties full of mundane exchanges, both received quite humorously are recurring themes in my work.

The images that I produce connect to a world charged with ambiguity and doubt.

In spite of this awkwardness, guilty for so many misconducts and misunderstandings people in my images never cease to strive to feel happy, to learn the ropes to really be.
