I'm passionate about pursuing environmental and cultural stories and just as obsessed in capturing cinematic moments in human stories. I write and I film. I've been published and broadcast by Al Jazeera, BBC, VOA, National Geographic, Bloomberg Quicktake, CCTV News (Now CGTN), Dutch Channel VPRO, Global Post (now part of PRI), CNN's cinematic platform Great Big Story and more. I've also filmed and produced advocacy short-docs for MAC Georgia, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), Agronomes et Vétérinaires Sans Frontières (AVSF), Czech NGO People In Need (PIN) etc.
