“My interest in photography began as a kid while leafing through pages of National Geographic. Two things fascinated me: a world I had yet to discover & the magical way in which it was
captured. ”

“I wish to bottle up and store the people, the light, and the moments around me.Photojournalism not only enables me to feed the part of my spirit that yearns to travel and discover, but it also
gives me the opportunity to document the intimate moments of everyday life that connect all humans.”
