During the week she is focused on numbers and at weekends she focuses on photography where she releases her built in vision and creativity. In her own words she says:
"Its very difficult to combine work and passion because there is no time for anything else. It helps that I love to do both so I don't really need a 'break'. I'm always planning my next projects, like in December I took pictures of everyone that showed up, and in 2015 I will take pictures for special make-up, for redheads and for a nude/lingerie project. And I'm also preparing a shoot with a professonal model, a make-up artist, a hairstylist and a stylist"
