I’m a photographer based in Las Vegas, Nevada. I have been a resident of Las Vegas since 2006 after living in Walnut, California, a suburb of Los Angeles.

My interest in photography started in 2003 when I received my first digital camera as a birthday gift and started taking amazing pictures during my study abroad in St. Croix, US Virgin Islands.

When I upgraded my camera to a DSLR, my love for photography grew, especially for landscape photography. I would visit national parks and scenic places just to take pictures, using works by Peter Lik and Ansel Adams as my inspiration.

In late 2012, I decided to improve my skills by taking pictures of people through portraits, editorials, and modeling shoots. Through self-learning, I have added photography to my repertoire in the same way I’ve built my web and graphic design skills. I am always learning!

My ultimate goal for the future is to inspire people through my photography and use it as a medium to meet people from different parts of the country, or even the world!
