Born in South Korea, put into foster care until the age of 3, and adopted to a family in Baltimore, Toby grew up with a very extroverted personality and a love for exploration. That love has sent him to over 30 countries, allowing him to meet life long friends, of which he visits every year—if it wasn't pandemic. With his appreciation for the arts, as well as the creative minds behind it, he searches for artists to work with, before photographers or videographers. When he's not in front of the camera, he spends his time between his businesses: consulting, real estate, and online e-commerce. "Understanding business is important to me to ensure I have the means to live a life of opportunity," Toby says, and his values show up with every opportunity he has in front of the camera.
