I grew up in London's East End and started taking photos at school.  I was fascinated by the way my more candid shots, unposed and taken in quieter moments could really capture the character & personality of my subject. 
I became the "official photographer" of family and friends, dreaming of one day traveling the world taking pictures of people in far flung places I'd seen in magazines and books of famous photographers.
Moving to the America and taking photos to raise awareness and funds for Non Profits and NGOs gave me the opportunity to travel extensively across the globe, visiting the countries I'd dreamed of, living for a few years in Sri Lanka, before returning to the US.
