Where to start? I've lived all over the place and traveled extensively throughout the United States and Asia. In 2000 I finally settled down in San Jose.  My first job after I received my degree in 3D animation, I ended up at a small post production house in Santa Clara editing, compositing  and animating in 3D and 2D. After bouncing around in the industry for a few years I landed a job as a Producer for an video game company.

I found myself getting burnt out working 90 hours a week so I took a break from the industry.

I was drawn to working with special needs children so I asked my friend Anna if there were any jobs at the school she worked at. Long story short, 9 years went by at a job that I loved but my soul told me to be creative again. I picked up a camera in 2012 and left my full time job in 2019 to pursue my passion and I haven't looked back since.

I get one shot to say everything and that pushes me to be better with every shoot. When I'm taking photos I feel like I'm meditating or in my own world.  Truth is spoken through art so I reach for that with every shot I take. I look forward to capturing what matters most to you because this is what matters most to me.

Gratitude Attitude.
