People interest me. Their stories, personalities and where they come from. There is great mystery to discovering people and understanding their story. It’s an opportunity to tell an expressive narrative through the lens of a camera.
Photojournalism was my first love, but as l explored who l was, storytelling and exploring narratives became a major part of the work l undertake now. It’s a passion of mine to become the storyteller within the work l do.
