Hi, I'm Patty!
Born in Thailand. Raised in Bangkok, Vancouver, Seattle, and Northern Virginia. Currently located in the D.C. area.
When I'm not working my 9-5 as a Business Consultant at a tech company, I'm photographing people and places, making films, and designing websites. And when I'm not doing that, I'm hiking through national parks, listening to music, and editing my own photos and videos.

Once I got my first camera, the rest was history.
That DSLR changed everything. It intertwined all of the different aspects of my life and gave me even more paths to explore. What started as capturing my family vacations and taking "artsy" photos to post on Tumblr turned into a business, meaningful projects, and documentation of my life that I know I'll be happy to have forever.
My life has consistently been a mix of a little bit of this and a little bit of that. A fusion of my life in Thailand and my life in the United States. A combination of my analytical side and my artistic side. A blend of everything I discovered that made my life just a bit more meaningful, no matter how random it seemed.
Still, this is only a fraction of me.
My hands are almost never empty, whether they’re flipping the pages of a book, assembling jewelry for my small business, or crocheting a new sweater. I’m drawn to a challenge, and my passion translates to my work and my day-to-day life. I don’t want to just do my job—I want to embrace it.

This was an eventful year for me. I graduated from high school, took a trip to Japan, visited family in Thailand, and started my freshman year at Virginia Tech.
