I received my first camera in middle school. It was my father's film camera he had bought when he was in the Marines and was traveling around the world. When I first started high school, I bought my own camera; one that I've used since to photograph sports games, concerts, scientists, and the world around me.
I have continued to build on my skills in photography and photojournalism. My photos aren't perfect, but they have helped me take a on new perspective of the world.
