A female person with dreadlocks is standing and smiling at the camera. Behind her sits a large valley of green mountains and a stream that becomes a waterfall. The person is wearing a light blue t-shirt under a navy blue rainjacket. Her hair is frizzly and all over the place due to the high winds.

I am a Deaf nomadic storyteller with a burning passion for exploring and creating impactful art that pushes the world to become more inclusive. Authenticity is always an essential element that I include in my work to create a visually compelling message. The message itself is as important as the design and appearance, which is often untraditional and diverse. I am eager to leap into the unknown, whether that might be a hot desert, cool rainforest, or a peak of a snowy mountain. My approach to creating memorable adventures is quite similar to how I approach my design and photography strategy. I am ambitious to find traveling photojournalism assignments to raise awareness of the issues regarding human rights. Additionally, I also strive to communicate the severe impact on our Earth by climate change through my silent perspective in photography.
