"If you have integrity, nothing else matters. If you don't have integrity, nothing else matters." ~Alan Simpson
"There is no pillow so soft as a clear conscience." ~French Proverb
What would you do if you knew you could not fail?
How high would you fly?
How deep would you love?
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
We need to ask ourselves, A hundred years from now, will it have made a difference that I lived? Did I wake up every day and give it my best, pursuing my dreams and goals? Did I keep my heart of compassion open, helping others, giving, caring, serving?
Follow your bliss.. and the universe will open doors for you, where there were only walls...
To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.
"He allowed himself to be swayed by his conviction that human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, but that life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves."
Gabriel Garcia Marquez - Love in the Time of Cholera
Photography is one of the most beautiful art forms because the possibilities of combining "reality" with artistic layers, colors and objects are limitless. Photography is not reality, it is one representation of reality. It's my vision of what I want reality to look like: eternally beautiful.
I have a ravenous appetite for art and all things beautiful. My obsession with beauty translates into passionate photography and into developing meaningful relationships with with models, clients, other photographers and anyone else who I bring into my idealistic world of color, light and shadow.
I have traveled into fairly remote regions of the world hunting knowledge, wisdom and beauty. I spent two months in India with spiritual teachers, I smoked opium in a bamboo hut with an Akha Hill Tribe chief, I rode an old motorcycle through the hills and rainy valleys of Ireland alone and I studied philosophy at the University of Paris. My life stories are almost unbelievable, if you can ever get me to share them. I live with the hope that I can help beautify the world with my photography and my art.
From my poem, Light
I caught Light with the corner of my eye. She was spinning in her transparent rose silk, silent. She was looking over my right shoulder at the open door. She had that look in her eye. The remembrance of when darkness swallowed her inside his hellish belly...
My other interests include quantum physics, designing jewelry, and fashion. My education includes studying at The Sorbonne (University of Paris), University of Nice (France), Cambridge University (UK), University of New Hampshire and graduating Rutgers University.
Some of my past experiences include being an avid rock climber and sky diver (65 jumps), extreme skiing, managing a hot air balloon company and, as editor-in-chief, developed an extreme sports men's magazine that I named "EDGE: the adrenaline lifestyle magazine".
I've always been a writer, poet, adventurer and marketing consultant; I owned an advertising agency in Atlanta for many years and did marketing consulting, and published and edited magazine articles and poetry, most of my life. One of my favorite writing jobs was a poem that was commissioned by NASA about space exploration for one of their anniversary coffee-table books.
I love traveling and have traveled extensively, including to India, Nepal, Thailand, Laos, Turkey, Peru, Greece, Bolivia, France, England, Scotland, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Holland, the Bahamas, various islands, Canada and Mexico. Aside from France (where I lived and studied at The Sorbonne for a year) and England (where I studied at Cambridge University for a semester), I have lived in New Jersey, Philadelphia, New York, Connecticut, North Carolina (Asheville), Atlanta, California (Santa Cruz) and Maui. I have a BS in Communication and French from Rutgers University.
I have studied various spiritual disciplines, including Buddhism, yogic disciplines, Christianity and more, but I am not attached to any religion or particular discipline. I have many stories of meeting wonderful gurus in India and tribal chiefs in Thailand with the Akha Indian tribe. My life has been quite an adventure!
"Know ye not that ye are Gods." - Moses
"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand." ~ Albert Einstein
