My first ever photography exhibit was launched at thew Andaz hotel in West Hollywood on April 5th 2012.
The show was seen at the Tribeca Grand Hotel in New York City for a month, and later in the year it went up at the 200 Gallery in Provincetown, the OUT Hotel in NYC and then the Paul Smith store in Los Angeles.
