To me photography has always been a raw and honest expression of the self. I believe that in photography, the photographer unintentionally exposes a part of him/herself in the photo that can be seen. Like a fingerprint left on the image. You catch a glimpse of how someone sees the world.
I most enjoy shooting nature and landscape. I've studied photography at New York Institute of Photography and Michigan State.
I was raised in California and spend most of my time outdoors connecting with nature. Though I much prefer photography, I also use the mediums charcoal and graphite to make portraits of people and pets. I love surfing, hiking, backpacking and anything outdoors.
