Where do you find inspiration?

My inspiration is life. In a way the discovery of our journey as human beings. I like working on different media, because I see media as a tool to touch different topics and different people. It is a power-gift to be multi-disciplinary as it gives the opportunity to explore many paths in one life.

Why do youcreate Creative Non-Fiction?

There is no ‘why’. It is natural for me.
