“What if it’s the there
and not the here
that I long for?
The wander
and not the wait,
the magic
in the lost feet
stumbling down
the faraway street
and the way the moon
never hangs
quite the same.”
– Tyler Knott Gregson, 2014

I am a Calgary’s based photographer and graphic designer.

I was born and raised in the capital city of Vietnam, Hanoi. I lived in Singapore for 3 years then moved again to Calgary, my current location. The constant moves and relocation between 3 countries during the first 20 years of my life made me the person that I am today.

DRIVEN, SOCIABLE, ADAPTABLE & CREATIVE

I love to travel to see the differences in our cultures and lifestyles. I think our cultural background plays a big part in forming who we are as a person and among a whole. I like to observe the different ways people of different culture interact with each other.

Calgary is home to me. For how much I’ve traveled and the many cities I’ve lived in, I have considered Calgary to be my home. It has that small town feel, yet you still get to live that big city life. I love the random warm smiles I get walking down the streets, the smell of fresh snow, the many unique shapes of little snow flakes, the many colours of fall… For international kids like me, we often don’t know where our home is or where we belong to. Not until we get home sick, or get to experience that ‘home sick’ feeling. I was lucky enough to have found my “home”.

I am taking on new projects for existing and new small businesses. From business cards, menu designs, to web and social media management, I have you all covered. Check out my design works under Portfolio or my photographs under Gallery.

Let’s have a coffee and chat about what I can help to market your business and build your brand or about your next photography session!
