My past two and a half years have been spent pursuing a deeper truth within myself with the help of the external world. After moving through 22 countries in Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America, I've found that every space and every person has a unique underlying story, and my passion is in bringing those stories to life through my photography and words.
I tend to work with like-minded souls and my photography is founded on first forming a relationship of trust and then mindfully observing. I'm an empathic introvert, a great listener, and I enjoy making photography a contemplative, relaxed experience for anyone involved.
I'm available for photography in a personalized way. Let me help reveal your story that's been inside all along.
There was a time when I felt numb inside. By my own misguided volition, I confined myself to a cubicle with no walls. To an apartment full of things and the illusion of security that I thought I craved. I was always free to go. But I didn't.
I didn't realize at the time that I was breaking away from so much more than just my corporate job, but I knew something was shifting deep within. This is a story becoming more and more common. Leaving it all behind. Soul-searching. Mine was about taking action to understand myself, using this world as the arena to play and evolve within.
A generation is waking up to the possibilities outside the box. A collective group is going deeper in their pursuit of meaning. I've met them in the mountains, in teahouses, on retreat, in hostels, in the jungle, the frenetic cities and more. These are the people who I conversed with and photographed over the past two and a half years around the world.
So much pressure is put on our external world - successful career, perfect home, material goods. Nothing is wrong with any of these things unless they become distractions so big that we lose sight of who we are and what we even want. How much attention do we really pay to our own internal world? How can we possibly serve the world if we have no grasp of our own minds?
I'm currently in flux seeing how this world bends and breathes. It's not nearly as rigid as I'd thought.
