There has always been an artistic flare in me, going back to my five years of music lessons in my birth city. At the age of ten, my father's job had my family moving to Romania's capital city of Bucharest. Fast forward a few years, and as the big city was more than I could chew (due to being bullied and not being able to find my place), I first found retouching and later on photography from doing self-portraits as an incredibly healing process.

Later on I found myself enrolled in a media and entertainment course in The Netherlands. That's where I first started to work with models and it felt like I finally found myself and my place. My artistic horizons were opened more than I could ever imagine, and I ended up collaborating with some absolutely amazing individuals! I also started my own music webzine called Metaloud, doing reviews and band interviews.

After a while, I once more relocated to Finland (I like to travel a lot), where I had always felt my heart belonged. Here I had to start over, find new models to work with and meet new creatives. Not only this, but due to Metaloud, I was able to also get immersed in doing concert photography, an area I have been dying to be a professional in for years! I ditched writing reviews and doing interviews and am now focusing 100% on gig photography when it comes to the webzine. A few months back I've also started my own digital marketing and PR company called Cerulean Midnight, with a business partner who had a similar concept as mine.
