What interested you about becoming a photographer?
– As a child, I remember looking at photos that my grandfather had taken before he passed away. He was an avid photographer himself so we always had cameras at home. I grew up loving the art, and what began as a hobby during my formative years, eventually became a passionate lifelong endeavor.

Where do you find inspiration to make your photographs?
– I draw inspiration from the talent itself, their emotions and intrigue, and from ideas that come to mind at the moment or in the middle of the night. I mostly work with youth because there is a story to tell that is young and new, whether we dress it from the past, the present or the future.

What do you most like to photograph?
– I mostly like to photograph children and teens. There is so much creativity and art in their stories. The process of growing up can be intense, beautiful, and also terrifying. It is also fleeting. When I photograph youth I can create a new world or time travel, and the results are quite wonderful.

Who are your favorite photographers?
– My favorite photographers to date are Annie Leibovitz and Dorothea Lang. Annie Leibovitz continues to amaze me with her work and Dorothea Lang truly and beautifully transported us to the realities of the past with her documentaries.
