This is a black and white photo of me at four years old, sitting on my grandfather's lap while he read National Geographic to me. It was that day when my passion for capturing stills and traveling the world began to take shape. From that point on, I knew I wanted to explore the world, meet new people, and learn about different cultures.
Whether I am in LA or some distant location, I've come to understand that beauty and sadness exist all around us, and the human spirit remains resilient. My goal is to connect people through my photos in ways they never imagined. Whether I'm selling a product or capturing a candid moment, there is always beauty to be found. If I can capture the essence of truth through my lens, I can captivate my audience.
I am grateful for the friends and people I've met around the world, whether it was just a brief conversation on a bus or if you welcomed me into your home. I am thankful for these experiences and look forward to continuing to explore this beautiful planet.
