My love affair with photography began in 2013 when I borrowed a friend’s DSLR and started devouring online courses to learn how to shoot and edit photos. I shot parties, headshots, weddings, portraits, landscapes and finally… animals. It turns out that I love shooting nature, winged creatures and dogs the most!
I consider myself an artist first and foremost. Other artistic pursuits I love in addition to photography: writing, stand-up comedy, card-making/scrapbooking, video-editing, make-up, digital painting/illustration… things that allow me to play with arrangement, timing, sequence and colour.
For my formal education, I graduated from UBC with an Arts degree in Political Science and Psychology. Long story short, I originally thought I wanted to be a journalist. But as it turns out, I was happy enough photographing my peers (see Humans of UBC Psych) and telling stories the way I knew how.
What else? I love coffee, running, and playing tennis. At the time of this writing, I have an 17-month-old German Spitz x Pomeranian named Duke, who I love to bits and spoil endlessly! I am also a proud auntie who is blessed with 7 nieces and nephews.
