My first camera fell into my hands when I was 8. I found it at a thrift shop near a toy box and some Elvis Presley records. I've been shooting ever since. The first roll of film I shot was in my back yard. Now some of my favorite shots are of urban hikes throughout the streets of Los Angeles. By incorporating what is in my life into the art of photography, my desire is for others to feel the texture, see the vibrancy and to take a piece of my world into theirs.
