Before I could even express myself in writing, I fell under the spell of photography. I remember taking my first picture using my father's camera, and as soon as I held that photograph, I understood that I had the power to express my emotions, my thoughts, and my view of the world using pictures.

As a teenager, I used every available resource to expand my technical and artistic skills, to develop "the eye" for composing every photograph, and experience to pursue the best shot no matter how many times I needed to reshoot my subjects.

In 2011, I started my training at Hallmark Institute of Photography so I could follow my dream of becoming a professional photographer.
