Life is messy, food is good.
Those are two things I now know very confidently, especially since I began studying food. Many people always ask why I chose food to photograph, but in fact, I believe food chose me. Cuisine has helped mold this world into a wondrous place of endless new experiences, and food is a constant in every single person's life worldwide. Instead of focusing on aspects of life that make us different, which is easy to do in today's world, I want my work to embody what makes us the same. Food is constantly bringing people together for all occasions, happy and sad, and I believe it is a fine time to step back and revel in the experiences it allows us to have. I want my images to evoke the drive to do so with new and old friends, family, and all the special people in our lives.
This world is such a beautiful and magnificent place with countless opportunities to connect with the environments and people around us everyday.
I was fortunate enough to be born into a family of big hearts, open minds, and a deep passion for food that constantly brought us together and left many happy memories in our wake. I’m glad I am able to combine the love I have for photography with my passion for this unique world we live in and all it's wonderful experiences.
I hope to one day travel the world with my own publication to holistically engage the community with new cuisines, new cultures, and inspire new life experiences worldwide.
Everything you see on my website, unless noted otherwise was styled, photographed, and edited by me. Enjoy !
