I picked up my first camera at the age of 15. Portraits quickly became my passion. I started asking my friends to model for me. After a year of continuously working on my portfolio, I opened my opportunities to models and actresses. I quickly gained recognition in the creative field but I was always critical of my own work and sometimes would rather hate what I made. As I entered college, I joined my school's newspaper and became the senior editor for multimedia. I realized how rewarding it is to have my own meaningful photos circulating the web and print for the good. I have restarted "Humans of UB" as a photojournalism project to work on. While in NYC for school breaks, I try to shoot portraits as much as I can. I'm a photojournalist in Buffalo and I'm a portrait photographer in NYC.
