I primarily shoot urban landscapes because I am most at home in cities and because I find them endlessly fascinating. I like making sense of how they work, of what holds them together, of what makes them tick. The sheer organization alone that goes into them is, to me, a source of wonder and beauty.

I am originally from Manila, Philippines. I currently reside in Philadelphia. I work with film, anything from 35mm to large format.

In 2013, I graduated from the master’s program in journalism at Temple University. Before entering the master’s program, I was working as a pastry chef.
