I grew up in a single parent household in Prince Georges county, Maryland...

At first my mother could afford sending me to a private school until financial burdens changed things. When I was 10, I went to my first public school. Things were different, but I made the best of it.  

I became a member of several performing arts programs that allowed me to continue playing the piano, which I had been playing since I was 3.

I found my love for photography on my 23rd birthday. My new found love for music as well as capturing that perfect image sparked my deep passion for traveling. I have spent much of my time since graduating high school traveling around the world to places like London, Jamaica, Amsterdam, and California. Currently, I'm finishing up my degree from University of Maryland University College in Computer Software and Security major. I will be graduating in the spring of 2017.

I will continue to use my passion for music and photography to expose individuals to different aspects of the world, empowering them in any way possible.
