Hi. I’m a Cinematographer/Director Born in Georgia, Tbilisi. Having spent my early childhood in the U.S, I continued to study Biology there. During the first year in the University I realized that I’d be simply better off by pursuing my lifelong passion: Filmmaking. So it was time to fly again. In 2017 after 6 years of studying I received my M.A degree from the Polish National Film School in Lodz. As of now I reside and work in between Poland, Georgia & other countries as well.
