About Me

I'm interested in photography, tech and computer products. I also like testing and reviewing a variety of products and have a wide range of hobbies and interests. I review products from a buyers perspective and after testing the product try to leave an informative video and good quality photos to go with the written review. I post these reviews on several social media platforms including YouTube, FaceBook and Pinterest in an established reviewing group.
