Documenting life through the lens of a camera began for me at a very young age. I was gifted my father's old Canon A-1, and shot a roll of film everyday for a year. Watching in real time, the shifts in my perspective, mesmerized by the versatility of this tool, I began seeking moments that expanded what I was feeling to a profound capacity. Photography has never been my professional vocation, just simply a means of expression and art. It allows me to enter hidden gardens, foreign cultures, and immerse deeper into experience. I love telling stories in this capacity.
