I was a closed person before. My difficulty to express my thoughts, in effect, made it hard to socialize with others. On a certain point of my life, in my quest to find the perfect medium to express my mind, I stumbled into the world of photography. My exploration within made me realize how the medium helped me release my pent-up passion in the field of arts.

And as time passes, my infatuation grew and before I knew it, I was already immersed within photography. In my journey, on every step i took, it never cease to teach me new things. From its practices, I learned to appreciate time. The journey itself, to me, was a process, and what changed me the most is how I find it to be a beautiful medium to connect with others and to find myself gaining the ability to adapt myself to different kinds of environment.

My curiosity, the endeavor to document history through visually perceptible forms, and my travels through time and space leads me to explore the deeper meaning of photography and deliver me the understanding of my own character.

Photography has opened my eyes, my heart, and my mind.
