I spend my free time hiking/backpacking and photographing the landscape around me. I enjoy roaming the mountains and forest and observing the natural world around me. My interest in photographing nature varies widely from macro to waterfalls, streams, trees, flowers and landscape. I especially enjoy capturing landscapes under soft early morning or evening light and approaching storm (clouds) provides dramatic effect on the land. Trying to capture a great image doesn't come easy; sometimes it's luck but mostly it involves patience and persistence. I often find myself going back to the same place numerous times trying to get that elusive photo and that is what makes photography challenging and gratifying.

I also enjoy studying sports nutrition and how to improve exercise endurance, enhance post-recovery through protein and glycogen synthesis.
