Describe yourself in five or fewer words
I'm a passionate and creative person who loves capturing the natural beauty in everything.
Describe your ideal day
My ideal day starts with a lie-in, woken up by the sun peeking in the curtains, somewhere in the mediteranian. I spend the morning swimming in the sea and reading on the beach, and then travel to meet local makers in a nearby village.
I get to know them and they show me their processes, and I photograph them with my film camera. The images might go on to be a feature in a magazine, showcasing their unique talents. We end the day with a drink and chatting about what it means to live a creative life.
What’s your favorite book and why?
I recently read Crying in H Mart by Michelle Zauner, and it quickly became on of my favourite books I've read. It's a beautiful, meaningful and heartfelt story of the author looking after her mother towards the end of her life.
It's also a food memoir, as she connects to her Korean heritage through her mother and family's recipes. I thought it was such a lovely observation of family life, through the good and awful, and what it means to be from somewhere else than where you live.
If you could time travel back to a single point in history, where would you go and why?
I'd love to transport back to when dinosaurs roamed the earth and see what that really looked like, how cool would that be.
If you could be any animal other than a human for a day, what would you be and why?
My cat - he lives the most gentle, sleepy and content life!
