Bio: I am a 20 year old half Indonesian, half American who is in love with traveling and exploring this beautiful world. I’m currently on my third year at UMD double majoring in Environment & Sustainability and Political Science. Photography is a big part of my life, I love that it lets me capture stories and moments. If you’d like to see, I have more stories to tell through my photos on my website.
Favorite place to eat: My mom’s kitchen, she makes the best authentic Indonesian food! But for restaurants, Sara’s Table.
Favorite place to shop: Global Village for the cute stuff and Duluth Pack for the outdoor gear freak in me.
Favorite Duluth activity: The hiking trails around Duluth are my favorite places to go to when I need time alone. I find peace and inspiration by just being one with nature. I also love driving up to Stoney Point and just hang out on the lake shore with some friends.
Favorite time of day to shoot: About two hours before sunrise or sunset AKA golden hour.
Favorite season in Duluth: Fall for the colors, summer for the warmth.
Photos taken with: Sometimes my iPhone, sometimes my Nikon D80 with 35mm f/2 and 24-70mm f/2.8
