For those who were wondering, I am a photographer and creative with a Hungarian heart, literally always in flux. I found a great balance between a visionary and a realist that gives vent to my inner controversies. The result is not to define but to raise questions. Curiosity drives me to create — to understand human nature through genuine stories, authenticity and aesthetics. Due to the medium’s virtue, I am constantly seeking logical connections and conceptions between the universal real and what is said to be one's reality. I act upon my instinct and intuition for framing to strengthen visual narratives.

I graduated in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Photography from Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in Budapest. In 2015 I received a scholarship to Aalto University School of Arts, Design, and Architecture in Helsinki that made an irreversible impact on my life: I had fallen in love for the first time.

Beyond the devotion to personal projects and daily business in advertising, my engagement with the creative industry has extended to film in 2016. I have been continuously working as a motion picture unit still photographer and visual researcher ever since.

After years of living out of a suitcase, in 2021 I decided to settle down in Vienna and keep on working worldwide.
