Financial freedom . FREEDOM In general

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’m a photographer whose work focuses more on realism . I like tangible stories which is the main reason why I love documentary photography. I also do shoot high fashion or at least am aiming for at that as well as editorials.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I have just recently moved to New York City this far I don’t have a favorite spot but in general I’m really addicted to coffee shops .
