NONPROFIT PASSION PROJECTS
In 2007, photography still just a passion, I found myself volunteering at an orphanage in Kenya, where I hatched the idea to blend this passion with my love for travel and desire to give back.
Four continents and 20 nonprofits later, I've had the privilege of working with organizations like UNICEF, Nobel Peace Prize-winning Muhammad Yunus’ Grameen Foundation and Opus Award-winning St. Luke's Foundation, for which I'm a Volunteer Ambassador.
This work has now been published in Newsweek, it's been used on annual reports, websites, social media, for fund raising -- ultimately seen by hundreds of thousands of people globally.
