My journey in photography and videography began with a simple goal: to support and celebrate our community. I wanted to highlight the incredible talent, passion, and dedication found in our neighborhoods, particularly among the youth.
What drives me is seeing people invest countless hours in their craft, and I'm motivated to capture their stories through moving pictures and images. I'm committed to serving our community for as long as I can, using my skills to showcase the remarkable individuals and their achievements.
I come from a Burundian family, a small central African country. My last name, "Not forgotten," carries a meaningful message. I was born in Tanzania in 2004 and moved to the United States when I was three years old in 2007.
From a young age, I had a deep fascination with cameras. I always found excuses to take photos, and my passion for photography grew over time. In March 2020, just as the pandemic was starting, I bought my first DSLR camera. With the extra time on my hands, I immersed myself in learning everything about it and capturing anything and everything that caught my eye.
Over the past three years, I've been actively building my reputation in the Gresham and Portland metro areas by shining a spotlight on the talented young athletes in these communities. Looking ahead, I aspire to continue serving my communities while expanding my reach to capture higher levels of athletic achievement.
