Growing up, I knew I had a creative imagination. My first awareness wasn't from photography, but from music, my father used to play records in the house all the time, so there was always music playing and a big part of my memory growing up. That early experience into the art of music interests me to pick up and play the drum instrument at age 9 for many years and up to this present day. Not until I was a young teenager in high school when I connected with a second creative love at first sight piece of an art form that is photography. My first ever camera was a hand down from my uncle; it was an Olympus OM1 film camera. Always since I been fortunate to have a second creative outlet, I see photography and music as a cohesive, creative force combined. Ive been shooting for 10years and hope to release the first photo book of my collection of travel photographs in the next year.
