welcome!

Hi. Hello. Welcome :)

Thanks for stopping by raw + rove where I share my perspective of the world around us. Hopefully you enjoy the pictures as much as I did while taking them; all of the images have been an accumulative result of travel, inspiration, and love.

I've been wanting to start a photo website for a long time but I never really mustered up the courage to do so. I was always too scared, too worried, too anxious...too something. But more than anything, I was mostly worried that I didn't have enough content to share. But along came 2017 and after more than 5 years of wanting for an online portfolio, I thought it was now or never. raw+rove was finally released on January 20th, 2017 after many months of curating.

Looking back now, I realize that it wasn't really the amount of content I was hesitant about but more so the quality. Hence, I'm continuously striving to make sure my material showcases the rich and vibrant life I witness when I'm on the road.

This project really would not have been possible without the numerous friends and colleagues that have helped me along the way. I would like to thank everyone that has been involved in the process-this website is only possible because of the dedication and support from all of them. And of course I owe gratitude to the many subjects in my photos, without their permission and their beauty, I would have nothing to work with.

So.

Take this website and do what you want with it: scroll, click, go back, go forth, comment, criticize, observe, critique, examine, investigate, google, question, exit, share, laugh, inspect, judge, compare, explain, skip. This is your platform as much as it is mine; we share this space and creation of people, places, and stories. 

Thank you and enjoy.
