It was junior year in high school when I’d decided to become a photographer. I’ve always been a natural observer. I remember watching films and viewing work by Gordon Parks and wanting to be just like him. In college, I studied to become a photojournalist; Mr. Parks’ visual take on the world was my inspiration.

I believe in written, transparent truths. I believe that deep down, we have an idea of who we are at our core. I believe that the truth, no matter how raw, is the only thing we should accept and understand. I incorporate a visual aspect to my writing because that’s how I see beauty.

I’m inspired by many things – emotion, faith, photography and culture – and I like to share what I’ve learned with you. I consider myself to be a creative, my opinions and ideas are always evolving.

When I’m not creating, I’m most likely exploring new restaurants around town, traveling, taking pictures or reading blogs dedicated to SELF – awareness, development/discovery and, expression.
