How would you describe your photography journey to date? Where do you see yourself moving forward?
‘My photography journey has definitely been a fun and challenging one. The successes don’t come without failures. Before I made it to this stage, I spent many years working overtime just to get my work out and there were many times I’ve come close to being broke. It was not an easy journey, but it was definitely worth it. Now, as I move forward, my head is in creating a legacy to leave behind. I am embracing my talents as an entrepreneur more. I am focusing on my business venture (Modern Home + Living). I am starting to move into directing music videos and commercials. I am expanding to work more in Asia. And I am looking to do more non-profit projecs to give back to the community’.
