Currently volunteering for a small NGO in Afghanistan. Had a couple chances to travel around the country so far, and have been impressed by how incredibly photogenic the people and the places here have been.

Previously I was doing an internship at a News-organization/NGO in Seoul, and before that, just finished my Master's Degree at a university in Tokyo. I`m from the K-W region in Ontario, Canada, and am deeply interested in photo-journalism, social rights issues and East Asian studies.
