I am inspired by the rocks, water, the trees and some very special people. My photographs are how I share the wisdom.

I can be found primarily in Seattle and NYC as well outlying areas.

real people

Real People: Intimate moments, authentic connections. By taking the time to let my subjects relax and being in the places that make them comfortable, stories unfold and moment in time is captured in photographic images.

Artistry

I use the camera as a way to slow down, listen and connect with what is in front of me so that I can focus and learn.

Art

Making art involves finding the right medium for every story. Whether it is a book, an acrylic glass print, a video or drawing, making art involves searching for the best/ most intuitive way to tell each individual story.
