She does not have any formal training in photography but learned the basics from a mentor who taught her a lot about photography and has greatly influenced her to be passionate with her craft. She is married with three kids and works in one of the most reputable banks in the Philippines. Aside from her family and work, she enjoys photography a lot. For her, it is a way of self expression.
