"You don't take a photograph, you make it."    -Ansel Adams



I've always been looking at life from behind a camera lens. I remember discovering my dad's old Olympus for the first time when I was 7 and feeling both a sense of awe over the device as well as a craving to capture the world around me. 

I express myself through photography as well as various other mediums including painting, drawing, filming and mixed media. I studied classical arts in high school and more recently studied photography at the School of the Photographic Arts: Ottawa (SPAO). 

My photographic work dabbles in various themes, from formal portraiture, to cityscapes to pets. While I'm still searching for my own sense of recognition in my photos, I always strive to find the hidden stories and natural starkness in the everyday. 

What I love about photography is that it reconnects me with my sense of wonder and reminds me life is short and full of adventure.
