Your creative process:
I usually sketch out ideas for poses if I’m shooting with a model and write down or sketch ideas for what kind of mood I want to convey but then the day of shoot arrives and I just scrap it aaaaallll. I just tend to shoot without too much planning and get inspired by the environment and available light at the location. But when it comes to personal stuff I think  my creative process surges from looking and admiring what’s around me.
What inspired you recently?
When I look at the work of photographers or other artists who I love I always find inspiration and motivation to express myself and portray my personal experience.
Recurring theme(s) in your work:
I have no idea! But I do tend to take pictures of either my hands or of the people I shoot with and I’ve noticed I take lots of close up shots.

What’s your favorite photo you’ve ever taken  and why?
I don’t have a favorite photo but I do have a favorite set of portraits that I’ve had the most fun shooting. In the summer of 2014 I was in Tapei and shot with a very cool dude named Jay Walker. We just met one day and walked around in different neighborhoods. I had a blast.
What captivates you the most in people you shoot?
Their personality
Your dream project:
My dream project is to live and work as a photographer in China and Japan and publish photo books on several projects that I have in mind.
