I am a frustrated cook who always got scolded by my wife for leaving the kitchen a mess. Since I shifted to Android, I set aside my DSLR camera and started advocating on mobile photography. I won an ASUS Premium phone last year which motivated me more to pursue mobile photography. Loved it, even more, when I won a flagship phone from Huawei last May.

I am a corporate slave for over 2 years now doing digital marketing for Australian-based clients.
