I document most of my readings on Goodreads.

Some of my favourite quotes from some of my favourite writers

Life can’t be all that bad, I’d think from time to time. Whatever happens, I can always take a long walk along the Bosphorus.” —Orhan Pamuk, Istanbul: Memories and the City

“Tiger got to hunt, bird got to fly; Man got to sit and wonder why, why, why?’; Tiger got to sleep, bird got to land; Man got to tell himself he understand.” —Kurt Vonnegut, Cat’s Cradle

“Perhaps we become aware of our age only at exceptional moments and most of the time we are ageless.” —Milan Kundera, Immortality

“It may be normal, darling; but I’d rather be natural.” —Truman Capote, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Three Stories


I document most of the films I watch on Mubi and am always sketching ideas for my next short movie. You view my short film-ography on my Vimeo profile.


Below is a selection of the photos I took. I mainly use Canon AE-1, Nikon D-90, Fisheye No. 2 and Diana F+. My Flickr profile is unfortunately not complete.
