I was born in Ploiesti, Romania in 1985 and came to Germany 1991, where I grew up in Augsburg. This year I interned at Milk Studios and Creative Exchange Agency in New York. I’m studying photography since 2006 at the University of Applied Sciences Bielefeld, faculty of art and design and I’m currently staying in the States to work on my diploma project.
