About & Resume


I’m a very outgoing, friendly person with an incredible knack for remembering people’s names. I work well on a deadline and with fast paced turnarounds. I would love to combine my photography and visual arts skills with my love and passion for environmental conservation, urban horticulture and community arts. I love to travel.
