My photography journey began over 20 years ago as a teenager, when I was given my first camera. At that time, I had the amazing opportunity to travel to Europe and the beautiful scenery sparked my passion. I shot over 35 rolls of film during that trip and have been in love with the craft ever since. While I find my recent path has drawn more towards Photojournalism, I still enjoy shooting landscapes, cities, and events, among other subjects. I am looking forward to seeing where the journey of photography is going to take me in the future.
