I love exploring, and I love the outdoors.
It was natural for me to begin experimenting with photography.

As a student and chemist, I find relation between
science and photography – constantly synthesizing,
scrutinizing, and changing perspective.

Since relocating to San Diego for graduate school,
the natural beauty of Southern California has truly been inspiring.
I spend my free time, camera in hand,
searching for a beautiful scene. 

This set of photographs brings a unique
perspective to quintessential California scenery.
I hope you enjoy my work.
