Behind The Lens: Kevin J. Hsia

Some time ago, I got the pleasure of making the acquaintance of  a talented local photographer with a firm identity in himself and a great view on life. Name? Kevin J.

Europe Bound

Those of you who follow me on Twitter know I’ve been raving about my upcoming expedition to Europe. I’ve been over excited about the whole trip, but for the longest time, I’ve had Traveler’s Block.
