I was taught photography at the age of 7, primarily through my Father and playing around with disposable film cameras. Through the years I saw photography as a stop gap, something to help with my childhood obsession with loss. If I could capture the perfect photo of something I would have it forever. As I grew, I became enamored with the art, seeing a beautiful composition out in ordinary life became so gratifying.
Street Photography has taught me so much about my hometown of Los Angeles and the world but also about myself. I see it as a way to show that people all around the world are more similar than different. It has gotten me out of my comfort zone and opened me up to some truly amazing experiences. I hope to capture and share that emotion with the viewer when they see my images.
