The San Francisco Bay Area
Originally from Long Beach, I came to live in the Bay Area at the age of 22. At first, I felt very out of place, and for several years wondered if I would stay. Eventually I took a job that required me to randomly drive long distances to different job sites. Being no stranger to traffic, I would spend hours staring out the window. I was constantly amazed that I would go from flat land, to rolling hills, to metropolitan skylines, to seacliffs in a single afternoon. I have met people from all walks of life, everyone existing in a rich, multicultural heritage that makes this area special. This is probably why I started focusing on portraits, I'm obsessed with skin tones!
