When I was a little girl growing up in a ski town in Switzerland, my dad would tell me stories about different cultures and people. These storytelling moments made me travel through my imagination. So as soon as I was able to read, I devoured his National Geographic magazines.  I was fascinated by the articles, but what interested me most, was the photographers. The way they can tell a story or evoke different emotions just through one photo.

Once I finished university, I booked a one-way flight to the US, took my camera, and started traveling through the country by bus. I came across countless magical places and met beautiful people from around the world who told me their own tales. That is the moment when I realized that I could also share these stories through my camera and take followers on my journey.

For 6 years, I have been discovering the world. All of the amazing humans I have met have taught me something new about photography or about life. For two years, I have been mostly living in Australia. As a Swiss mountain girl, I am discovering a completely new world by being on the ocean.

I am currently exploring surfing photography and enjoying the simple lifestyle down in Byron Bay.
