Biography

I'm a 26 year old landscape and night photographer and I live in Toronto (Canada). Photography is my passion, and it serves as more than just a hobby for me...it is a way to see the world. I teach high school students for a living and doing so is an absolute joy.

For the last several years, I have been taking photos whenever I get some time off. I am thankful for every opportunity that I have to both experience and capture some of my Creator`s handiwork. I am a follower of Jesus Christ, my faith feeds my photographic pursuits and appreciation for beauty around me, and I aim to represent Christ in everything I do.

Photographically speaking, my inspirations are: Marc Adamus, Alex Noriega, Miles Morgan, Ryan Dyar, Ted Gore, and David Thompson (aka D Breezy).
