Social Media Consultant | Photographer | Geek
Introduction
"I move like a ghost, in and out of peoples lives, capturing fleeting moments with my camera."

I am a street photographer based in Los Angeles, California. I am one of those rare Angelinos who is actually born, raised and still lives in Los Angeles.

Ever since I got my hands on my first camera, a Kodak Hawkeye Instamatic Camera, at the age of 6; I became passionate about photography. I still remember the feeling of anticipation having to wait days just to take a trip to the Fotomat to pick up my developed photographs. I cherish that feeling and I still feel it today; especially when I get to my studio to see the results of a fun day of shooting.

"Nothing happens when you sit at home. I always make it a point to carry a camera with me at all times…I just shoot at what interests me at that moment."
– Elliott Erwitt



I am also the founder of revisedMEDIA a boutique-style Social Media consulting company based out of Los Angeles, CA focusing on small businesses.
