About me

I am the Editor of my own online media publication entitled 14HQ. Besides overseeing the general progression of the publication as a whole, my main work and passion resides with Music Journalism and Photography. My passion lies in interviewing artists while capturing iconic and memorable moments with artists and all creatives. I discovered my passion and talent for Music Journalism and Photography while I was studying Law. Life works in mysterious ways.
