ABOUT ME

THROUGH THE LENSE

 

 

I first picked up a camera while living in Los Angeles. Having no formal art schooling but a lot of determination, I begun experimenting with film and later moved to digital.

 

Spending summers between LA, New York and Mexico provided me with a mix of cultural experiences that continue to influence my photography.

 

My passion for capturing peoples simple everyday moments, has given me the opportunity to express not only myself but also the individuals i photograph.. I strongly believe that if everyone could experience how others live, this world would be more compassionate, filled with less prejudice and more tolerance.

 

I am in a constant search to make a difference and will continue my education through my travels and through my lense via the moments and people that I capture.
