    While studying at film school I founded an audio-visual studio with other associates. We made videos and photo sessions for companies and universities and I worked as video and sound designer/editor, photographer and camera operator. The skills I acquired then and my studies have granted me a broad understanding of cinematography, which I apply in my work to this day.
