I am a jour­nal­ist, pho­tog­ra­pher, creative direc­tor and travel en­thu­si­ast. I like to trans­mit nat­u­ral beauty from my point of view and with my per­sonal touch and a fo­cus on ed­i­to­rial, com­mer­cial and life­style pho­tog­ra­phy. But above all it is very emo­tional. Since my child­hood, I have had a cam­era in my hand. My mother was a great am­a­teur pho­tog­ra­pher and sub­con­sciously I dis­cov­ered a pas­sion to ex­press my­self through pho­tog­ra­phy. I re­mem­ber fram­ing mo­ments with my eyes when I was a child and the de­sire to cap­ture a mo­ment of hap­pi­ness when I was on va­ca­tion with my fam­ily.

I travel of­ten. For me it is very im­por­tant to dis­con­nect and above all, to look for beauty in new places. Trav­el­ling is one of my great hob­bies and­dreams.

The brands that I need to wear while trav­el­ling are No­madic State of Mind and All Things Mochi. Ev­ery day I try to be very com­fort­able with clothes that do not hin­der my mo­bil­ity or over­whelmme.Iamaper­son­who­believesin­less is more in all as­pects of life.

What is the most beau­ti­ful place you have ev­erseen?

Cap de Creus in Spain is one of the most mag­i­cal places in the world for me. It is lo­cated on the Costa Brava and has a very spe­cial charm. It is a very wild nat­u­ral park where I have been go­ing to since I was lit­tle. It has all the im­por­tant things for me: the open sea, wild rocks, the breeze that ca­resses your face and a light­house where they playlive­mu­sic.

One of the trips with its own charm for me is Cinque Terre in Italy. It is a place full of colour­ful per­son­al­ity by the sea. The Balearic Is­lands in Spain are full of white vil­lages, with crys­tal clear wa­ters and small places to eat and en­joy time to rest. It is a great way to es­cape when all you need to do is dis­con­nect and you want to dive into mar­itime life. Capri is a des­ti­na­tion I have wanted to go to all my life, and when I ar­rived it seemed like a dream. At last it was a re­al­ity! It is au­then­tic, colour­ful and the Mediter­ranean light that I love gives life to all of my photos.
