A short introduction

“Zurich based photographer and IT-specialist with a passion for design, technology and languages. Fluent in French, Spanish, German and English.”

I was born in Zurich, Switzerland, but raised in Geneva. In 2003 I returned to Zurich. My IT career began back in 2008 at IBM – Since then I have gained a lot of work experience at different international IT companies. But besides my work as an IT specialist, I love to take photographs. I began to take pictures at the age of 16 with a Canon 400D. Throughout the years, I have changed to more professional full-frame cameras – I currently work with a Canon 5D Mark III and a Minolta X-700 for analog photographs. Most of my photographs are portraits and landscapes.

So what about my life besides being a photographer?

I’m currently studying my undergraduate academic degree (Bachelor of Science) at ZHAW School of Management and Law in International Management. I will spend one year abroad in Kuala Lumpur, starting July 2017, which I’m looking forward to. I’m a speedcuber and I love to solve any kind of puzzles. I also know plenty of useless facts, so if you meet me, you can expect some random side info about life, universe and everything.
