I am a South African-born photographer based in the South Bay, and a member of South Bay Artist Collective. 

I am self-taught and continuously learning.  My photography journey is a reflection of my personal journey, and it began as a deliberate tool to change my mental perspective and intentionally focus my attention on finding beauty in my surroundings.  My photography is inherently reflective of my emotional intentions. I get overwhelmed  by the volume of everyday life, and the ability to focus in on just a few details is the source of my love for macro photography.

Photography serves as a catalyst for growth and healing and it has provided a respite through some challenging times. It revealed an artistic side  of myself I believed didn't exist, and has led to experiences and relationships I would never have had without it. 

I started #apictureaday series in 2021 as a reset on my mental intentions.
