An amalgamation of tech geek and traditional artist, I bridge my love for the arts, beauty, and emotion with advancements in computers, optics, and lighting. I began taking photos like most, just to take snapshots of friends or on birthdays to remember events. I painted and sketched as a form of artistic expression as far back as I can remember but became disenchanted with gooey paint and blackened hands, covered in charcoal. It wasn't until I decided to invest money in to a professional camera and the time to learn the science behind light that the lust for photography became more than just a hobby. This was the conception of a passion and obsession for me that drives me to create images that tell stories, express emotion, and reveal personalities in those that allow me to photograph them.
