Yep, that’s me, 12 years old, holding my first beat up camera of about the same age, back in the day when I didn’t have to worry about a thing and just did what came to me naturally. Little did I know about the pragmatic world around me and the path it was about to send me on.

I came to United States when I was 18. Energetic and determined to succeed I started working in IT and 4 years later had everything I could possibly want out of that profession. Well fed and secure I went on and on until the day when I quit the corporate world altogether to go back to school to study the things I was really passionate about. It took some years and a degree in philosophy to come to the simple realization that what I enjoy the most is exactly what I liked when I was a little boy.

So, here I am, back where I started, and totally loving it!
