About me

I inherited my love for food from my grandfather. His joyful spirit has inspired me not only in life but also in my work.I loved sharing meals with him. He helped me see things in a different light. He was no chef but he would mix together the strangest ingredients and bring liveliness to the plainest meals. His favorite was beans with honey. He made it popular among me and my cousins.My family is a big one and my grandfather was infamous for going grocery shopping and splurging on weird exotic foods instead of the bare necessities that were needed. My grandma was not too thrilled but I would stick around to hear his stories and the enthusiasm in his eyes. Now trying different flavors and exploring is a big part of who I am . I also am a very visual and hands on creator. That’s why photography was a very organic move for me . First as a hobby and after some studying as a professional. I have a big admiration for culinary artists and this endless form of expression. It’s like discovering something new everyday. This has drawn me into the food photography world.
