I don't tell stories with words. That's why I didn't write this myself. Someone wrote this in my name so it's something you want to read. Just as I don't tell the stories in my photographs. I let the places and people in them do the talking. My talent is capturing what they have to say. My passion is traveling to collect these stories.

My life as a photographer started when I travelled to Africa. I took my father's old camera with me and fell in love with capturing the world around me. After that I took up a study in photography at University of the Nations on Hawaii and the rest, as they say, is history.

Because I'm a traveller and I like to travel light my photography is spontaneous and not heavy on extra lighting, or effects. It's just me and my camera.
