As a multi-lingual photographer, designer and landscaper I take pride in my eye for composition as well as social and cultural trends. Abilities also include Adobe suite and some AutoCAD work leading me to design posters for various music events. My vast knowledge of languages also helps me in my communication with people of varying backgrounds
