When I was about 6 years old, I received a spy kit for my birthday. It had a plastic briefcase with a hole in the side, through which you could either shoot plastic bullets or pictures. I've been shooting pictures ever since.

A few years ago, I decided to focus more time and energy on my hobby
and enrolled in black and white photography classes at the Palo Alto Adult
School. I found that I really enjoyed the process of working on my image
with my own hands in the darkroom. It can be a long process to get the print
just right, but the end result can be very satisfying. I'm also honing my photographic
skills through my participation in the Palo Alto Camera Club.
