I am an activist irrelevant to the cause, motivated irrelevant of the situation, an annoying health conscious, happy with the little things, sports and adventure lover, adrenaline junkie, curious about life and love sharing my experiences through my camera lens. I dream of nothing, if I feel like doing it, I work on achieving it.โ€
