Websites | Explore my websites and their content.
Ever since my high school days, I've had a fascination with creating websites. From learning HTML and CSS to mastering content management systems like Wix and Squarespace, I have gained a lot of knowledge over the years. Having always loved the idea of creating content and publishing it for the world to enjoy, it's nice knowing that I essentially own a small percentage of the Internet — extremely small at that, but at least it's something.
Below are two of my websites that I currently manage on a regular basis, along with brief descriptions of each. A third website that I'm always working on is the one you're viewing now, my personal website.

Videos | YouTube has changed my life.
July 15, 2006 is a date that I will forever remember. It's the exact day I registered as "thecreativeone" on YouTube. Since then, my life has changed dramatically, and for the better. From sharing some of life's most important moments through vlogging to providing in-depth reviews on the latest technology, creating original video content for the world to enjoy is something I am deeply passionate about. Through that passion, I've managed to create a community of 160,000+ subscribers. And let me tell you, it wasn't easy.
At some point over the years, my love for YouTube turned into a paying career. It's why I am proud to call myself a content creator. The opportunity to get paid for doing something I enjoy is a dream that I'm sure is had by many. Not a day goes by that I don't realize how fortunate I truly am. But of course, none of this happened overnight. Making a living online requires a ton of time and effort. Oh, and especially patience.

Photography | Capturing anything from everything.
Much like video content, photography is a medium that I have always taken great interest in. From capturing life's moments to viewing everyday objects from unique perspectives, getting the right shot is important to me. One of my favorite aspects about photography is sharing my work with others. And while I by no means consider myself to be a professional, I have certainly learned a lot over the years — primarily through self-experience.
Most photographers will usually tell you that gear doesn't matter, which I typically agree with. After all, snapping a good photo isn't something everyone is capable of doing. Many factors come into play, such as getting the right composition by applying the rule of thirds. However, I do find it interesting to see the kinds of results that can come out of specific cameras. As a technology geek, that's important to me.
Below you can find a few galleries of mine, each categorized by the camera that was used to take these photos. For editing photos, my preferred apps of choice are Adobe Lightroom, Snapseed and Instagram.
