Rainbotron Operator at Werework Digital

  • Location: London
  • Career stage: Entry

Hi!
I'm a London-based art & language nerd.
My passions are visual and contemporary art, photography, and telling stories through writing and images.

My background is in languages and literature, along with theatre and art history.
I’ve just finished an MA in Comparative Literature from UCL, and before that I pursued a BA in English and Portuguese linguistics and literature, and a BA in acting, simultaneously.
My MA research dissertation focused on mid-20th century American text and image, particularly the work of photographer Robert Frank.

I’ve been photographing analog and digital for over 7 years, and recently started working on art installations (like the Rainbotron). I'm also skilled in manual film developing and processing, as well as Photoshop and Lightroom.

In the past, I’ve co-founded one theatre festival for teenagers in Romania and worked with several others as an editor, promoter, participant liaison, and actor.

My most recent collaboration, the Rainbotron, is an improvised photo studio I assembled from an antique wardrobe and an app for creating studio lighting. It debuted at the Werework Digital tech speakeasy launch, where we had an impromptu photo session with our guests. You can check it out here:

I learned English around the same time I started speaking Romanian, so I consider myself bilingual. I'm also well on my way to fluency in Portuguese, French and Spanish. I want to (hopefully) add Greek and Russian to that list one day.

I’m currently looking to put my passions and experience to good use in publishing or the visual arts world, with an internship or entry-level position.
If you think I might be the right fit for a role, want to collaborate, or have any further questions/curiosity, please don't hesitate to contact me.
