As a photographer, my mission is to capture my photos as I feel it, translating my emotions into powerful and evocative shots. I specialize in capturing the beauty and energy of everyday life, and believe that my work can capture a sense of place and time in a way that is both intimate and edgy. I am driven by a desire to tell real, raw stories through my images, and to bring the world around me to life in a way that is authentic and compelling. As a native of Orange County and a graduate of the University of Southern California, Long Beach, I have a deep appreciation for the vibrant and diverse communities that I call home. I hope to use my skills and passion for photography to share these stories with the world.
