If you live to be one hundred,

I want to live to be one hundred minus one day,

so I never have to live without you.

PHOTOGRAPHER | PLANNER

I have worked in the customer service industry for most of my working life. After timeless occasions of feeling like I was going nowhere and that I was stuck in a rut, on a constant search for a career that was fulfilling and wasn't a complete bore, I found myself often in a fit of despair. Since then I was committed to documenting everything that made me happy and I quickly became that friend that would constantly have their phone out for the perfect photo.


Noticing my developing interest in photography, my father got me a low-end DSLR camera. This changed everything for me, I was no longer interested in images on my mobile phone, but rather capturing something that would have a greater meaning beyond myself. My eyes were opened as to how I could actually do something with this, I could really use photography to mean something, to be something more than a lifelong passion.

I started Tilted Tripod and very few could understand, no one could accept that I had chosen the path of being a photographer when I had the grades to become a doctor or something that is traditionally deemed inspiring. But I thought photographers were inspiring!


When I pick up my camera, I get a rush. My mind becomes so active, filling with ideas of how to use the space and what photos to take. It's terrifying but it feels so amazing to do what I do. I love my job, I love people and I love watching people's stories unfold.
