He likes to say, "since an early age photography has taken me. It has been a toy, a tool, an escape, and a way to communicate. Design and photography are tools of communication and they personally give me a means to see past my immediate reality—when I view the world through photography, I become a better individual. I learn about faraway people and places, reminding me that the world is vast and beyond my immediate understanding."
