Travel and photography are two of my great passions in life. I believe that travel opens your mind to the different viewpoints of the world. Meeting people from other communities, experiencing other cultures and countries has helped me understand that all of our lives are interconnected yet very individual. It has made me better understand and appreciate my own home and culture as well as that of the people I've met and the lands I've seen. I feel that I have become a much more open minded person as a result. Through my photography I seek to capture my own experiences, scenes and events as I see them and to share with others the beauty and diversity of the world I've seen. As the images of other photographers have inspired me to explore my world, I hope my own images will inspire others to explore their world as well.
