My main passion lies in the field of hauntology and trans-generational trauma. I have researched and studied these fields for more than 20 years. I am interested in creative approaches to therapy, personal expression, and how we understand each other and be with each other, in service of a greater self.

I write mainly about family legends, family stories. Mainly mine.

I often think about myself as an Archeologist of the Soul.

I am an artist. I explore the narrative potential of photography through constructed and deconstructed images, often made with layers, cuts, dreamy alternative processes. The art pieces I create are digital. I mainly work with my own family photos (but also photos taken from the net), questioning time, memory, attributing new forms of narrations, new forms of forgiveness.

I mainly highlight the social features of oblivion, processes in the creation of memories and discourses. My art appears here either to illustrate the writing or just alone in the form of numbered dreams.
