Before my grandma passed away, she always told me, “Go explore the world! Don’t stick around old people like me; we’re too high maintenance at this age..." I went to Japan in 2013, which was when she passed away, sadly. I vowed to myself to never be filled with such guilt and regret again, hence why I have started this blog.
As you may have guessed, I’m a techie, but also an amateur photographer and yearn to travel. It would seem like none of these things are related, but it somehow personally clicked. Keeping up with tech helps me stay ahead of the curve and keeps my mind alert. I view the world “through the looking glass.” In other words, I bring a camera everywhere I go, regardless if it’s my phone or my full-blown dSLR setup.
From a young age, I always got bored; I never sat still. I was always looking for something to do. Both my parents worked in IT in programming and infrastructure, so I was very exposed to working with my hands, especially in technology, in addition to being able to apply my knowledge. Naturally, I work in IT full time and always dreamed of becoming an architect of a technologically advanced empire. Now that I think of it, it was a very unrealistic dream. I have since moved on to looking at life through a different set of lens (figuratively and literally) by traveling using my photography equipment. Besides being stuck in a chair for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, the reason for this website is document and share with friends, family, and everyone else about my travels through blogging and potentially vlogging in the future.
