“I’m currently working in the public service as a communications/branding manager. I specialise in managing integrated marketing campaigns, as well as content strategy and production. In my free time, I enjoy photography, and this also happens to be the area in which I contribute to Codette the most. Besides doing photography coverage of events, I am also in charge of the ‘Success Looks Like This’ photo project.”

Fancy Lounge (lol)

Who is a style icon that you absolutely admire?

Favourite element to photograph:
I love capturing natural light and how it illuminates the raw landscape, or even on random objects.

That somehow we’re ‘conservative’ and ‘not modern’.
