About

My purpose as a photographer and an artist is to, essentially, visually represent my individual experiences and emotions. I value self-worth and letting everyone have an equal opportunity to express their voice. My creations are linked to my journey in exploring what art is, and what it can become by my hand in this life. The precious quality of life is understanding your relationship to it and what better way to explore that than photography and art.
