“I am a first generation immigrant from Ukraine raised in the Pacific Northwest.  As a child, I was fascinated with exploring new places and capturing my experiences.  Being the youngest of 7 kids raised by a single mom in a low income household, I was taught to cherish moments over possessions (read: we were poor).  My joy came from the memories made with friends and the curious places we would find rather than the things money could buy us.  My first summer working, I saved up some money and quickly spent it on a camera that I used to capture everything.  In school, I was the guy walking around with a camera while everyone else walked around with their flip phones.

Photography was my enabler – my escape from the out-of-reach materialistic desire and into a world of beauty and depth.  It was, and it continues to be my motivation to see the world.”
