About me

I'm a storyteller at heart, with a focus on people, history, culture and art. I focus on creating meaningful content with a visually pleasing aesthetic. I'm a reflective person by nature, often taking time to look at things from a different angle and continue from there. I have a deep appreciation for how people express themselves in the mediums of art, fashion, and films.
