About Me

I honestly can't remember when I snapped my first photo or what camera it was. But I think I may have progressed a little since then.

I'm a freelance photographer and educator. I was born in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and this is where I have been living most of my life. I have dabbled in art and music but photography has always been a passion that's never strayed all these years.


My love for travelling means it's only natural for me to lug my camera around everywhere I go. I try to see beyond what is in front of our eyes. I try to see within the person I'm photographing or try to engage in a unique way with the scene I'm viewing.


There's a story to be captured or told with every image. That's what I try to do.
