I am a native of San Diego, California. I am an engineer, and I picked up a camera as a perfect way for a geek to create art. I love to travel and explore, and through the camera I become more observant and patient. Time slows down when I pick up the camera. I see more, but I also feel more. Naturally an introvert, my photographs provide a vehicle for me to talk to people about my experiences. It allows me to connect with people and I love to tell their stories in a way that is authentic and reveals their heart and soul. I love learning and photography has provided endless learning opportunities.
