I am a portrait and lifestyle photographer who focuses on capturing emotion, life, and truth in my photographs. I never stop making new discoveries of myself and will always have stories to tell. With my photographs, I have a stage on which I can do so.
To share art and to make discoveries are my photographic missions. My photography offers a platform, a rock on which I can build, reveal, and realize myself and those around me. I spend time devoted to my passions and surroundings, finding the history within others and new stories within myself. I learn who I am and who they are and how we want to leave our marks on the world. With my eye I make collections of photographs that, when revealed, we learn something.
