As a graphic designer and a photographer, image is everything to me. After graduating from the Visual Communication Design program at California State University, Long Beach, I became a full-time graphic designer. Because of my design background, I treat every frame of photography as a design project. Things like contrast, composition, and positive and negative space come naturally to me. The pictures I take bring me back to wonderful memories every time I see them. I am grateful and honored that I have the opportunity to take my cameras with me and be a part of the happiest moments in people's lives. Every couple's smiles are the drive that push me to always improve my craft and to progress to a higher level of photography.
