Based in the San Francisco Bay Area. I was born in the Bay Area in CA and raised in Sacramento, CA; I was surrounded by diversity and various cultures.  The urban culture is what I grew up with and appreciate.  Coming from a traditional Filipino family Photography is looked down upon.  I emerge from the shadows, expressing who I am and my interest through my photography.  I have been doing photography since 2002 of my senior year of High School.  It is another world to me, things that the ordinary people most likely won't see.  I am traditionally trained in photography going back to black & white and color film days, and then transitioning to the digital world.

I am a Portrait and Fashion photographer, but I was trained in all genres of photography.  I can see the beauty in anything and see what is unique to anything.  Capturing from the gritty urban to the true beauties of people and peacefulness of the world, that is what I do.  Photo shoots with me isn't boring, it's like a day of hanging out, but professional.
