I am an avid traveller and a self-confessed shutterbug with no formal training in photography. I prefer using a point and shoot camera for convenience. I am based in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.

June 2014 Update: Do visit my latest gallery on Nepal. I hope you enjoy viewing the photos most of which were taken during my trek in the Khumbu region, along the route to Everest Base Camp. Although I did not make it to EBC, the experience was out of this world. While there, I was made acutely aware of the hardships faced by the porters (not related to trekking) who carry impossibly heavy loads for days on end. They live in villages far south of the trekking area so they do not get support from the tourism industry. The trekking route is non-driveable so goods are mainly transported by pack animals or porters.

I have decided to donate all proceeds from the sale of any of my artwork on FAA to a poor family or families in the villages so that their children can go to school. Education is key in lifting them out of poverty and providing them empowerment. This is the ultimate goal for me.

Thank you for your support. Tashi Delek!

P.S. as of December 2014: with funds raised from family, friends and colleagues (mainly from running a half-marathon), I am able to send one girl from an impoverished family to a hostel in Namche Bazaar. Although education is free, the hostel stay is not. She will be enrolled in April 2015. The hostel and school environments will ensure her safety and give her an opportunity to study and be with children her age.
