My love for traveling and exploring the world was also my early gateway into photography. Before becoming a full-time photographer, I have been a hobby photographer for over 40 years, while pursuing a scientific career. Yes, I have a Ph.D. in Chemistry, but eventually, though, my artistic side yearned to come out. I love travelling, and the outdoors. The oceans, the mountains, the desert in their beauty and greatness have a tremendously soothing and calming effect, while forcing us to be in the moment. Travel broadens our mind by showing us diversity and similarity all at the same time.
