“I have blended my passions, photography and assisting others, to try to create images that can inspire people, move them, but overall to bring them closer to the subject.
The word “photography” means “drawing with light.” Ultimately, I believe that photography can also be used to share that light.

I’m a big believer in the power of stories, I think is part of our DNA as human beings, somehow we all need stories to keep us alive, inspired, conscious and aware of our own existence. I’m a visual storyteller that loves to write and portrait people’s lives. ”
