Nat Photography


Photography is my passion. I do not only take wedding photos but also do portraits, landscapes, and street photography. This section represents my perspective on how I see the world through the lenses.

Villas at Vanston Park


Jay called my name from his office about 15 feet away. "How did you get this number? " We do had a great office phone system but CALLING always worked faster. "You have to be very be careful. This report will be sent to the bank." Yes, sir. I'll fix it. I responded.

This conversation happened almost the whole year when I was working at Sphinx Development Corporation (SDC) during my Optional Practical Training (OPT). My job is to work with LIHTC applications. Most of the work was number and spreadsheet. It was challenging, VERY challenging.

Visiting VP site with Jay for the first time.

Villas of Vanston Park (VP) in one of our projects. VP is an up scale apartment in Mesquite with $16.7M in contract. Building an apartment is not very simple. Our team had been through all kind of problems. Jay never gave up.

Last August, I had to leave the job and came back to school while VP wasn't complete.

When Angel, the receptionist of SDC called me to come to the grand opening of VP. I was excited and happy. VP is now real. Residents moved in and fully operated. The project is done. THIS PROJECT IS THE RESULT OF 4 YEAR' BLOOD SWEAT, AND TEARS!

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
