I realized that the natural wonders I had photos taken were not guaranteed to last forever. Climate change, pollution, and deforestation threatened to destroy the very ecosystems that had given me so much joy and wonder. I knew then that I had to do my part to protect nature and all the adventures it offered. I committed myself to promoting a culture of sustainability. I began to explore ways to reduce my carbon footprint and share awareness with others about the importance of caring for our planet. I sought out new adventures and envisioned both nature and culture in the world of art and resiliency through photography.
