My passion for photography began about four years ago when I got out of high school, I picked up a Canon AE-1 and started learning how to make exposures and compose images. After a year at Orange Coast College for school, I transferred to Academy of Art University in San Francisco. I studied there for a year, but decided to return home because of expenses. I have entered and received a "runner-up" title in the Brixton Monthly Photo Contest ( jan '17 & jan '15). I am currently enrolled at Palomar College, focusing on Fine Art Black and White processing.
