One of the most satisfying experiences in my life so far has been the privilege of sharing the thing that I love and that has sustained me for my whole life, photography. Teaching has been a two way experience for me as I found that as I shared my knowledge and experience, my students also gave back to me. The joy of knowing that I have helped others to achieve their dream has been no less than incredible.
Six years ago, I was given the opportunity to live on Gabriola Island, a jewel in the chain of islands that is 20 minutes from Nanaimo BC. During my stay there I have had a lot of time to think and explore and I have come to realize that photography has been central to my philosophy. It gives me a way to relate with the world.
Making photographs is what I do.
