 At 14, I dreamt of being amidst towering skyscrapers and architects, inspiring my studies in architectural engineering in Italy and the Netherlands. At 22, I delved into photography with an exhibition in Baghdad before the 2003 Iraq war.  Returning, I shared visual narratives in exhibitions and newspapers, discovering the fulfilment in raising awareness through images.

Yet, my architectural drive remained strong, leading me to London in 2006 to work on Jean Nouvel's advanced facades project.  I then pursued a master’s in Sustainable Facade Engineering in Bath. followed by 12 years at Norman Foster’s, developing sustainable solutions, contributing to patents, and traveling to 70 countries, exploring nature and societal impacts.

My parents’ losses in 2013 and 2021 reminded me of the value of existence. During COVID-19,  reflection in an operating theatre spurred a seven-month solo campervan journey in Scotland’s Highlands, working remotely for Foster+Partners. The dichotomy between architectural practice and Nature’s wisdom became irreconcilable.

 This inspired a full new journey in 2021, to seek a knowledge system rooted in biocentric equality and harmonious reconciliation with the Natural World. Drawing on my passion for yoga practice and oriental philosophies, I delved into the industrialisation of the natural world (anthrobiome), and ventured into the last remains wilderness sanctuaries (biomes) of glacial Norway and the Antarctic continent, collaborating with the NVE and the EU Embassy in Argentina.

Now, I live as a nomadic messenger for Nature to create immersive experiences that emphasise rewilding, biodiversity, and symbiosis, envisioning an inclusive, ecotopical society.

In the last year I was awarded with several international recognitions, including the 2022 Sony World Photo Award in the Landscape Professional Category. The photographic series “Life on Earth”, according to the Sony SWPA judges, ’delves into the ethereal magic of nature and the mysterious beauty of an untamed world…”.
