I believe in the power of imagery and I believe in the power of creativity. Photography is how I digest and document the experience of life. My mother is from Finland and my father was from Indonesia and I grew up in the LA area. This cultural mix and encouragement of exploration at a young age has taken me to remote places like Mongolia, the Northern Territory of Australia, and the Amazon in order to understand the human condition. I currently reside in Long Beach, CA but always have my passport ready.
