How did you first get into the Industry?
My mother owned a Canon AT-1 camera from the 1970s that she passed down to me. I thought it was the coolest thing ever! Ever since then, I became fascinated with photography and finding interesting and unique ways to capture the “small things in life.” After purchasing a camera with video capabilities, I started filming those “small things in life,” which ultimately led me here!
What is one of your favourite aspects of your job?
I very much enjoy meeting new people and hearing the amazing stories they have to share, and being given the opportunity of creatively capturing those amazing stories for them to share even further.
What is something that inspires you?
My late Grandmother, still to this day, inspires me to be the best I can be. I wouldn’t be where I am today without her continuously and lovingly pushing me to follow my dreams, no matter where they took me.
