I was born and raised in the Northern Luzon island of the Philippines. Before my 18th birthday, I moved with my family to Southern California.
Though trained in the field of biology and chemistry, a part of me has always yearned for some artistic expression. This came in the form of performance art, fashion and then, photography.
I am a self taught photographer who only seriously picked up a camera in 2010. Though there are instances that I believe digital is a better choice, I prefer to shoot film because of it's quality, rawness and richness. From 2010 up to the present, I never stopped taking photographs.
Photography gave me an outlet not only to express myself artistically but also to connect with myself and the world around me. I aim to capture details of the fleeting moments in the streets and spaces where I roam. And hopefully the viewers will feel a connection to these images.
I also believe that I have a unique story to tell through my photographs.
