ABOUT ME

To truly be moved and feel emotion is the best inspiration to stimulate your creative power.

Photography is not just something I do, it is a part of who I am. I believe beauty is truth and when I am able to capture it through my lens, that is when I feel fulfilled. I am full of wanderlust and think the world is a magical place we should all make an effort to discover.
I live to get lost in new places, and prefer to have no plan when I do. I’m the girl who shows up at 3 am in Cairo, with no arrangement or idea of what my next step shall be. But I sustain my excitement for discovery and culture. I’m in love with places I have never been to, and people I have never met.

I was born and raised in the beautiful mountain town of Petrosani, Romania in the Carpathian Mountains. Yes, I am from Transylvania, it’s a real place!

 

Currently, I reside in San Francisco, California. This is a place so magical, I begin each day exploring a new neighborhood with my cup of coffee, and reading inspirational words from my favorite articles and books. My inspiration for my artistry comes from beautiful lighting, music, books, good design, and architecture, but most of all by the silence of nature.

My best work comes when I identify and observe vulnerability, love, and deeper connections with the people I am photographing.

My goal is to defy the impermanence of time through photography, capturing real moments of our lives, holding on tighter to each other, loving harder, creating a space where memories of our connections cannot die.

There you have it! My wild spirit all summed up in a couple of paragraphs!

Coffee, chocolate, and ice cream are my three diet staples and I can put horseradish on anything.

I used to ride a scooter and drive a mini cooper, and no, I am not THAT European.

I can eat homemade French fries with feta cheese for breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Although I am from Transylvania, I have never seen Dracula’s Castle

I might be a little in love with Jason Silva ….shhh don’t tell him!

I love skiing and I am an adrenaline addict

I love old fashions, cali coolers and visinata ( homemade dark cherry liquor made by my mom)

My favorite time of day is 2 am when I walk alone in the streets and experience the calm of the night

I can’t wait to meet you and experience a little bit of life with you! Let’s capture memories together!
