Based out of San Antonio, Texas.
"Last year I spent a few months exploring the backstreets and alleyways of Chinese cities. This image was the first shots I took as I walked out to photograph the streets of Nanjing, China."
I have a bachelor of science in architecture from the University of Texas San Antonio. Architecture and photography are my two biggest passions in life.
Much of the work I produce comes from an interest in studying how our bodes interact with space and to a larger extent, how our minds are impressed with memories from these experiences. We carry these memories/ experiences of spaces with us as imprints on our brain... traces of the external world that are continuously filtered through our senses, the most predominant of these being sight.
Smell, taste, touch, sound, can also trigger memory, but the medium of photography has a power that can easily carry us back to a past experience, or lead us to imagine one we have never had.
I love to travel and create/ document new experiences for myself. I think this is what the human experience is all about. It is my hobby and my passion.
