Getting lost in the urban jungle is a true passion of mine, and I am either constantly taking pictures or thinking about taking them. By day, I am a language teacher, translator and communication coach, but almost all my spare time is devoted to photography. Together with my partner in crime, Kristof Vande Velde, I roam the streets looking for images that excite or move me in some way. Drawn to extraordinary lighting or striking contrasts, I specifically have a taste for emotive scenes with a dark twist.
I am a member of Observe collective. For more of my work, follow me on Flickr or Instagram.
