She loves to work close to the director and her team in order to built the perfect shoot to tell the story, express a feeling or create a beautiful image.

She is energetic, positive and brings good vibes on set. She likes to look for that angle that we are not use to see, to show the reality from another perspective. 

Her philosophy is take it slow, analyze and create. Simplicity is the way to create the most complex things.
