Years ago I used to daydream about photographing people, exciting events, and traveling to exotic places. I wanted to create Art and photograph people at their best and worst. Capturing emotion through the lens is a passion of mine. I decided to pursue that passion full time and I never looked back. At a very young age I became involved with dance, music, and art. I have always been a visual person - attracted to colors and textures. When I picked up my mothers 35mm camera at age 10, it felt very natural to take pictures. Creating scenes and dressing my younger sister up for photographs became a new hobby of mine. I consider myself a people person. Connecting with all sorts of people and finding out who they are is self full-filling . My job to date has taken me around the world; discovering many different countries. I am very fortunate to do what I love on a daily basis: traveling, meeting new people, photographing their lives and environment.
