I am drawn to the human element. My work blends an editorial style with commercial polish, around a strong central emphasis on humanness. Stylistically, I’m drawn to natural and organic moments as they reveal themselves. I look for beautiful and unconventional lighting, whether as found or constructed, to bring clarity and elegance to a scene.
Drawing from my diverse experiences growing up in various cultures, I approach people with understanding and empathy. As a deep observer and listener, I love discovering people’s personalities and perspectives, which then inform my working process.
