Biography of sorts... I hate talking about myself since I prefer the work to speak for itself, or rather have the work speak to the viewer without any preconceived notions about me clouding your vision. Born 1975, Rochester NY... first art class at age 4... I was sort of predestined to end up this way I think. Picked up a camera in middle school inspired by Ansel Adams and the American Southwest. Lots of things took place. I'm now in San Diego, CA working as a photographer / video editor / graphic designer / whatever labels apply. Left to my own devices and budget I enjoy conceiving, birthing and raising my own twisted view of beauty via conceptual fine art photography. (Not so sure it's either "fine" or "art" but it is what it is. I take beautiful people and portray them as broken, flawed items that are victims of circumstances I don't make clear to the viewer.
