Photography

Whenever I travel, I try to capture as many of those breathtaking moments as I can. Sometimes, it isn't easy, but I do my best. My process for post-production generally involves correcting the lens profile and the obvious sharpening, detail, and contrast adjustments.

I own the sony a7r2 mirrorless, full-frame camera, and I have picked up many versatile lenses over the years, leading to a wealthy library of photos.

Music

I started playing keyboard at the age of 13, and have since gone on to make some breathtaking musical scores. I do not play in any bands, but I try to get out and participate in open mics.
