Artist statement

I am an explorer driven by an impulse to capture beauty and light when I feel it and photography is my method to suspend moments of childlike wonder in time forever. When I travel I enjoy photographing everything under the sun. Everything has a story to tell. The visual exploration of life, culture, traditions, places, and emotions is crucial to me and that is why I am a photographer. Surrounded by new sights, sounds, and smells is when I feel the most alive and the least afraid.
I’ve always wanted to be an agent of positive change in the world and I believe that photography is a special way to bring stories home and change people’s perspectives. Photographs have the power to inspire compassion and create action towards a better future. My goals are to use my cameras to document domestic and international matters that are important to me and to serve others as a bridge between different worlds.
