Relocating to San Diego has been the best decision of my life although there have been hardships along the way every moment is worth it.

He has fostered an atmosphere and philosophy that focuses on the “need to give” rather than “giving to a need,” which is a new way of thinking.

Uncovering a film camera my parents had stashed away, I started toying with photography and never looked back. This was a way I could share the beautiful land and countryside culture with others.
