For over a decade I have been actively seeking to enhance my skills and education, with respect to my art, my work, and working in the community. Much of my time has been dedicated to volunteering with youth, because they are the future, their childhood development and enhancement are vital to their future, our future.
I enjoy working in production, photography and creative media which allow me to share my view of life, to breach language barriers, and to communicate with people throughout the world.
