Born 1988 in Daly City, CA. Currently residing in Santa Cruz, CA. Theater Arts alumnus from UCSC. Current Art Photography and Culinary Arts student at Cabrillo Community College in Aptos.
My passion is photography. Most of my work is in capturing and composing still images, but my real love is photographing people. I enjoy taking portraits capturing candid moments. I have experience working in studio portraiture (having worked in both Picture People and Sears Portrait Studios), but I thrive best outside studios, working freehand with my camera and the subject and shooting in ambient light.
I hope to one day become an event photographer, specifically for weddings, theatrical productions, special events, and perhaps high fashion.
