What are your goals for the future of photography?

Goals for the future of photography are just to be in environments where I can create diversity and create beautiful work that everybody would love and help others get there work seen.

Who is your favorite photographer?

My favorite photographer is Vivian Maier I enjoy her work because she’s a black-and-white artist and I would consider myself a black-and-white artist also, but in a fashion type way. I love her work because of the angles that she shot in and the type of people you usually gravitated towards.

What is the best way to describe your personal work?

This is a collection of some of my best work, all of my work I would consider being editorial portrait. I like to focus on the eyes because I believe they tell you everything you need to know about a person.
