Growing up in a humanitarian household meant moving and exploring countries as a family quite often. Born in Copenhagen, Denmark, by the time I was 18 I had lived in 5 different countries across 3 continents, so writing and photography became the way that I not only documented the world around me but processed it too.

Travelling the world and living in the midst of different cultures and communities has taught me more about humanity and life than all my years in school ever could. So after many blogs created and shut down, this has become my online home, where I think out loud about our commonalities as humans, peep through the curtains of pop culture and documenting the stories behind the people, places, languages and histories that I come across to find the beauty in being here on this planet.

At the very core of who we are – our heartbeats, the pulsating roots and the breaths of mother nature can assure us one thing – we’re all the same. I tell stories about our shared humanity, our innate need to be seen & heard and this experience we all know as life.

So welcome to where I document and showcase my work and thoughts. For any queries please email:
