Freezing Time is This Camera Man’s Super Power

It all began when: My aunt gave me a broken VHS camcorder that worked sometimes and I really loved to film videos with it. I was 7 or 8 then. Also around that time, one of my mom’s friends would let me go walk around the neighborhood and take photos with their camera.

My journey: When I was in 8th grade, my middle school started a video productions class. I learned and worked on all the facets of video production and it all just felt right. I felt I belonged.

Starting my own business: I started doing contract work and weddings with photographer friends and I was able to move on to being a full-time photographer in 2020. After a while, people started asking if I could do video. I had a background in it and always loved it so I decided to start offering that as well. With a few small tweaks to my camera gear and after investing in a few other pieces of equipment, I started making videos.

A saying I live by: Lately I have been really liking the philosophy of Ikigai, a Japanese concept of practicing something that gives a person a sense of purpose, a reason for living. To me it’s a really beautiful and powerful thing and is unique to each person.  

Life lessons: Time is the most valuable commodity. If money were no object, what would you do with your time? Your passion can be your profession. Don’t give up.

I want everyone to know: I am community-driven, inclusive, and want to use my skills to make my community and even world a better place. I’m passionate about delivering the best quality I am able to my clients to tell their story, and I can be somewhat of a perfectionist at times.

I look up to: My grandmother. She was the light of my life and taught me so much when I was young. She was so full of kindness, wisdom and strength and I oftentimes think in situations how she would handle it.
