Who is Jesus..... I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. The youngest of 5 children, I am a first-generation college graduate. Growing up in Cleveland was a challenge & leaving to attend Bethune-Cookman University was easily one of the best decisions I have made.
In 2016 while pursuing my bachelor's degree in Business Administration, I picked up photography as a hobby just to get a break from reality. I first began shooting my friends around campus and at football tailgates. Shortly after, the administration reached out to me to take pictures of certain school events that were published on the school's website, HBCUBuzz, the Shaderoom & a few other social media pages. I started “SCRAPTOGRAPHY” shortly after which prompted my colleagues to trust me with graduation photos, birthdays, weddings, etc.
After I graduated in 2017, I moved to DC to further my career at the time and I put photography on hold. Over the years I’ve done shoots occasionally but it was difficult to juggle with my work schedule. In 2021, I was presented with the opportunity to leave my full-time occupation and focus on my love and passion for furthering my photography. I now reside in Mexico and am a part of LightHouse Media, a great team and somewhere I can grow and become the best version of myself.
