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, it has been a privilege and an adventure to work with organizations like UNICEF, IRC, 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 in Newsweek and it's reached hundreds of thousands of NGO supporters globally.

The Grameen Foundation develops mobile phone technologies that cleverly help millions of poor in developing nations. “Give a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day. Give a woman microcredit, and she, her husband, her children and her extended family will eat for a lifetime” – Bono.
This is where it all began. Limuru Children’s Center helps hundreds of at risk kids and orphans get an education, one hot meal a day, medical support, and guidance from incredible staff.
