The above photograph is of El Capitan or "El Cap" as I've heard it endearingly called. Seeing this in person is phenomenal. I could stare at it for hours. Here it is again on the left at a different angle. And here, again. Now imagine someone climbing this. Imagine a lot of people. I became [...]

Redwoods was comfortable, but at times it took my breath away because of the exhilarating beauty. I feel so connected to something so close to my source, my soul. Redwoods gave me peace and calm. One hike here is not like another. It's all a different experience. The Redwoods changed me. I felt so much [...]

Ever since I started watching documentaries about food waste, climate change, fast fashion and others, I began to really look at how my actions were in connection to these issues. I believe this really sparked my passion for nature more than I ever have. I developed a new appreciation for the world. National parks and [...]
A short narration based on a piece I wrote called, our dreams, conveyed through these photographs. The words above were: We flew in from a place that had everything we ever needed. A home to protect us from danger, food that would feed our empty stomachs and love that would warm our hearts until the [...]
The blurriness reveals nothing to me. Standing in the middle of the field of flowers, taking photographs with a broken camera, my life was meaningful in ways I can't understand anymore. But I know I was free. I was alone. I was with a full heart of optimism and hope. And I was loved. That [...]
Good food is almost an essential for me when I travel--no, it's definitely important. Because to me it's more than the food. It's an experience with the place in a whole new point of view. It's how I can relate with the people who live there. I remember a time during the first longggg road [...]
It's getting colder nowadays. The sun sets earlier and the morning darkness creates the perfectly imperfect atmosphere to stay in bed. But we can't and life goes on to another day of being (or an attempt at being) a productive human being. That was a lot of "beings." But I long for summer, as I knew [...]
Mount Rainier at Reflection Lakes, one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen I went to a poetry festival a few years ago. There was one poet who stood out for me, but I unfortunately don't remember her name. She read her poem aloud. After sitting through and hearing from other poets read their [...]
This trip is special to me personally, but also in a big picture way; it opened up my eyes to a whole new way of being. It's been so long since I've been on an airplane and that in itself was a journey, a good journey. Despite some scary turbulence, sleep deprivation, undesirable options for [...]
A film I made with the footage I had captured at Oahu, Hawaii. There is beauty in nature. There is beauty in the every day. There is beauty in the sky, ocean, trees and every living thing on this earth. I hope everyone is having a peaceful day.
music: m83 - un nouveau soleil currently feeling a bit uninspired, but i miss writing here so much. if you're in this mood, i think listening to good music and seeing delicious food photographs can somehow fix this. i'm not positive, but it's kinda working for me a little (hey, i'm here, right?) looking through [...]
