I'm a landscape and documentary photographer based in Oakland California. I teach photography to people from all over the world. Through my interactions, I have learned that although we come from different backgrounds, people want more or less the same things out of life. We strive for happiness, comfort, and the well-being for those close to us. It is because of this simple truth that I can no longer look away from the extreme injustices that are occurring within the United States today. Armed with a camera, I have vowed to bring awareness to the most vital issues facing our society today.
