I was born and raised overseas, and from an early age became fascinated with culture. My travels led me atop places like the Sun Pyramid in Mexico, seeing the vastness of the Great Rift Valley in Kenya, dancing in thousand year old castles in the Czech Republic and now mastering the art of chopstick use in South Korea. I picked up a camera sometime in high school as an after thought for a school project. However after my first encounter in the dark room processing my own negatives it was game over. I bought my first Canon Rebel and have been snapping ever since. Now my list of equipment has expanded to several lenses and a nicer camera, but no doubt those critical first steps in buying the Rebel changed my life!I am continually inspired by the people I meet and the places I visit to capture a bit of their story. The human experience is vastly diverse and I thrive on witnessing as much of it as I can.
