I have a great interest in cinema and film history. I like examining the technical, spatial, social and philosophical elements of films.
I love travelling and experiencing different cultures. I find the world´s variety of people extremely interesting and seek knowledge from new people I meet. I enjoy learning languages and am always eager to improve myself.
I like going to museums and lectures, reading books and seeking information and inspiration from many different angles.
I experiment with photography and enjoy conveying my understanding and vision. I focus on things that usually go unnoticed, that evoke a feeling. I like to experiment with the assembly of materials and making structures.
I am interested in the city as an organism and instrument of people´s interactions and needs. One of my inspirations and great interests (which I addressed in my B.A. thesis) is different spaces of architecture (both physical and of the mind) and how they affect and choreograph people; How a person´s perception of space stretches from their mind, to their body (personal space), to their immediate environment (social setting) and grows outward to a greater social context and shapes the way they interact with others.
