Born curious to discover the unknown, I am always on my way to explore mysterious and fascinating places and cultures. Having traveled to as many as 120+ cities across three continents, I am hungry as ever for more knowledge of the unknown, curious about the diversities that our amazing planet offers and that the amazing minds of human kinds create! I am dreaming about, and in the meanwhile taking realistic actions to realize the pan-Australia, Pan-Latin America, Pan-Africa, Pan-US road trip that I would like to share with great companies
Firmly believing in the self-development benefits that trans-cultural and trans-continental travel can bring, I am hoping on more adventures, challenges, enriching experiences, unexpected encounters on the way. Life is but a journey - as the cliche but the truth goes. In a matter of a hundred years- we be all be arriving a destination of where we come from, we will all be simplified to basic form of being - atoms- bringing with us only the beautiful memories of the diversified people and things we have experienced. This gives us a justifiable reason to maximize the content and width of our humble lives and try to help as many people as we can along the way.
In hyper-fast modern time, people are lost in their quick agendas. We lack for the time to contemplate on our own being- who we once were, who we have become today and what is it within us that has triggered this change ... Through photography once gets to slow down and take introspective on one's own life and the world around. Cultural-exploration type of travel enriches the soul, enlarges the heart, and makes one more compassionate with other human beings.
Photography is the best companion to travel, is a lifestyle, a way of learning to humbly appreciate the simple beauties in people and things. With peace and love in mind, I try to capture the moment that best embodies the multi-faceted urban vibe, rustic rural beauty, the purity and wildness of nature.
Textures, patterns, colors, shapes, lines and lights are mesmerizing in that when combined in different ways they become the small color pieces in kaleidoscope, conjuring up a world of magic, a vast sea of infinite imagination!
Follow me on a world-exploration journey and feel the curiosity, thrill, joy, humor, serenity conveyed by the subjects, which hopefully can spur your imagination and curiosity for discovering more of our stunning world. The world- is woven with art, poem, love and compassion!
Hesitate less. Dream more. Act more. Laugh more.
