The first birthday gift which really surprised me was a film camera. I was seven. Since then, the move to digital photography was just one of many changes in the way I photograph. I completed an Advanced Course of Travel Photography with the Photographic Society of Singapore¹ and a workshop on Editing Your Work with David H. Wells². More recently, took a course on Photographic Storytelling with the Dutch-born photographer Guus Rijven³ and a workshop on Short Story Writing with Lisa Friedman. My pictures have been featured in over 40 feature stories in press and two monographs I published in 2011 and 2018.


After living in Portugal, Italy, the United States, Switzerland and Singapore, I moved to The Netherlands in 2013. Yet, I am still as fascinated about traveling and new cultures as when I was a seven-year old.
