IT ALL STARTED WHEN...

I was 5 years old. My parents gifted me my first camera. It was a yellow film camera, and I used it to take pictures of bugs. As I continued to grow older, so did my camera collection. 

These days I find myself relishing in the excitement of architectural and urban photography. I also love shooting portraits in a  studio. My subjects are as eclectic as the people I pass on the sidewalk each day. And I wouldn't have it any other way.

Urban Photography

Cities excite me. They allure me. They invigorate me. I find serenity in the chaos, inspiration in the persistence, and comfort in the crowds. These photos are my attempt to convey the complicated relationship I have with cities. A relationship I gladly untangle each day.

Travel

My passport has taken me across 12 counties Europe into the Middle East, Africa, Cuba, Mexico, and across the United States. I'm grateful for my travels. Visiting other countries affords me the ability to redefine beauty. Variance is beautiful. Differences are beautiful. And yet, so are the similarities that seem to weave in and out of each place I've been. See more photos on my blog.
