Welcome!

Creativity has always been a huge part of my life. Like most photographers and artists, I see things that others don’t see. Lights and shadows are everywhere. I was fortunate enough to be able to study under my father, who was a professional photographer in his twenties and thirties. It wasn't long before I had my own camera and my own photography dreams. I started taking photography more seriously while in high school photographing sporting events.

Currently, my inspirations are Walker Evans, Robert Frank and Ansel Adams. I love the way they see the world as moments in time and tell the story of their subjects. I try to emulate this in all my work. I especially love black and white because it forces me and the viewer to notice light and details not apparent in a color photograph. I use color in my photography when it is part of the story and I’m especially drawn to reds. My choice of subject is organic—not planned. I like to stumble on a scene wherever I am-capturing images that most people walk by without noticing—so you will rarely see me without my camera.

In addition to photography, I am also a painter. I currently am exploring abstraction and conceptual art. This is a departure from my realistic photographs and gives me a different creative outlet. I like abstraction because its a different way of seeing things and exploring a subject. And, it allows me to express parts of myself that are subcouncious and impossible to articulate outside of my art. I don’t think I will ever stop creating. 

I keep an updated blog on things I’ve done, places I’ve been and art I’ve seen. I participate in exhibits, sell my work in galleries and have work in several private collections.
