Preferred Art Form: Photography
Since I was a kid I always loved taking pictures with cameras and playing around with them. Growing up my family wasn’t able buy me a camera so I was determined to purchase my own when I got older. In the summer of my grade 12 year I worked at a summer camp, which allowed me to make enough to buy myself a camera. I started off taking pictures for the summer camp, then when I got into university I took pictures for business and networking event. However, I really didn’t enjoy that environment. My friends started asking me to take their head shots for LinkedIn, and that’s when I fell in love with portrait photography. From then on, I started working with friends and meeting other photographers and models through Instagram. Which has allowed me to grow and better my work as a photographer.

What has been the most influential moment in your life?
The most influential moment in my life was making the change of careers from business to design. Making this change has been so great and has allowed me to integrate my interest of photography with my school/work life experience.
What themes do you pursue in your work?
The main theme in my photography work is people. I love taking pictures of people and making them feel good about themselves through these pictures.
