Semi self-taught, she found her passion in portrait photography, especially in street portraits, after her move to Beijing, China in 2008.
After her 2-year stint as senior photographer for Western Academy of Beijing (shooting school portraits, sports, drama, concerts, events and advertorial images), she is now back in Manila early 2014 building Exposure Media Productions with her husband, Peter.
