As the old saying goes, home is where the heart is. The Soil Beneath The Seeds is a collection of images I've taken over the years in what that place is for me-- consisting of moments shared with my beloved family and friends and images captured of other people living in the area.

My siblings and I were all born in Silver Spring, Maryland (DC area), but for us, home is the Wahiawa and Mililani side of Central O'ahu. My siblings and I have spent the majority of our lives here and growing up on this beautiful island has been detrimental to who we all are today. I owe everything that I am to my home and the people who have grown alongside with me. This series is ongoing and is an ode to a special place and the special people that I hold incredibly close to my heart.
