A little about me...
I am a human interest photographer, born and raised in Manila, Philippines.
A self-proclaimed global citizen, I believe that we all have a role to play as stewards of the Earth and the beings who share it.
I have gone down many paths to see beyond my backyard. From fronting an all-girl rock band to co-founding a thriving retail business. From building disaster resilient homes in Tacloban to learning about Social Innovation in Nairobi.
Some things I enjoy are a good laugh, chanting mantras, learning new things, volunteering and yes, the occasional shot of tequila.
My life is always on edit. The less we think we know, the better.
Kindness inspires me.
My work is a celebration of humanity - our diversity as well as an exploration into the things that connect us and bring us together.
The best part about taking photos for me is getting to know the subject. I work towards capturing simple and genuine moments with them.
I shoot on location and use available light.
Photography is also a way for me to touch on social issues that I advocate for, like reproductive health.
Follow my personal project - Make No Strangers.
May all beings everywhere be happy and free, and may my thoughts, words and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and that freedom for all.
