I was born in 1987, and grew up in Tbilisi, Georgia during the last few years of the collapsing Soviet Union. Moving to Canada at a young age dramatically influenced the way I perceived cultural norms. It continuously pushes me to examine other corners of the world and cultural diversity.
Since an early age I have been inquisitive and adventurous by nature. It has followed me till this day, where I find myself in interesting situations because of a turn I took or a random stranger I trusted.
My father is a major influence for me in pursuing a career in a creative field. I can attribute much of my knowledge and pallet for art to his immense contribution to educate me on the matter.
My mission as a photographer and filmmaker is to examine life and illuminate its beauty through creative expression.
