I am a photographic artist, author, educator and public speaker. In my main time, I work as a data scientist, marketing scholar and coach.

Throughout my life I have felt myself inspired by music, by words, recently by images. What all these wonderful tools have in common is that they mirror the mystery, monumentality and multiplicity of nature. Life is inseparable from nature and so are we. Although we are part of nature we are often so separated from it.

Nature is sturdy but fragile. We are close but distant. For that reason, it has never been enough for me to just observe, I always wanted to be involved, being part of it. Remote wilderness areas are what I am searching for, discoverable through meandering around, bushwhacking through the woods or uphill backpacking. For that, I prefer the off-season periods in life.

Photography supports me closing the distance between nature and myself. Photography is the tool immersing myself into nature. It supports me to understand. To reflect. To experience. A moment to see the world for what it is. In these moments with my camera, light seems to be nature’s poetry that I strive to discover. The light that shines, shapes, safes and sounds.

And try to immortalize these moments as best as I can. Thankful.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for stopping by my website. Now meander around and I do hope you enjoy looking at my images as much as I enjoyed making them.
