I am an award winning photographer based in San Francisco and I've been photographing food, interiors and people for more than ten years. My unique approach brings a natural, lifestyle feel to my photographs and my style falls seamlessly between each type of assignment. Whether it's working with advertising clients like Splenda, print publications like Glamour or award winning chefs and interior designers, I believe there is beauty everywhere and in everything. My passion is capturing that beauty through photographs!
I see every job as an opportunity: for developing a new concept, working in a spectacular location, meeting new people or experiencing something I’ve never seen before. I’m relaxed on set, work with technical ease and love collaboration. Most of all, I love to make my clients' vision come to life through amazing photography.
After graduating from Syracuse University with a BFA in Photography, I spent several years working as a Photo Editor, which deepened my knowledge of the industry.
I moved to NYC from Romania when I was 11 years old and I was instantly dazzled by the beauty, colors and layers of this amazing city. Photography has given me a way to replicate that feeling of seeing something beautiful and new for the first time. It’s that feeling that drove me to take my first pictures with my father’s old Minolta and it’s what drives me still.
Everyday, I use photography to capture the best version of real life.
