Tonnes of plastic into its oceans and this goes on to indiscriminately kill marine mammals, birds and other creatures.

Other than Cosmetic Dentistry, my Sphynx Cat Zucky and Zooky, I only have few passion in life that I find it so consuming in my mind - that is photography. I am an amateur photographer that enjoy the art of photography, and appreciate the ability to preserve memories and moments. My passion for photography leads me to travels extensively in pursuit of adventure and photographs Cultural, Scenics & Wildlife.
