"Become quiet with your awareness that everything is you and you are everything... God dwells within you as you."
F O R W O R D:
This, for me, is another small step forward.
As with most things, I am here for learning, growth, and fun.
I'm here for the experience of it all, whether I'm in front of or behind the camera, while expanding my network and portfolio in both areas.
I'm enthusiastic about creating art from my own imagination or helping others create theirs.
I welcome all suggestions and concepts!
I may do anything for fun or for my professional benefit, but, understand that I gain nothing personally from superficial work. I am not a mindless, plastic doll with vanity issues.
I want to create art with a purpose, something meaningful that hopefully inspires thought and emotion.
Storytelling shoots are my favorites.
As a multi-medium visual artist, actor, musician, writer and aspiring filmmaker, I Am learning more about photography as another creative medium. I am currently working on a photo-graphic novel and several movie projects.
I prefer shoots to be fun but professional.
In everything we do, it is important to enjoy the process in the moment.
I enjoy driving. Road trips welcomed if its worth it or compensated.
2" tear/water droplet shaped scar on my left upper arm, usually unnoticed. No tattoos yet.
I am compiling a design/fabrication portfolio.
Whatever you see in your vision that you don't have, can't find, or can't make... I can and do make damn near anything. I welcome a project.
*If you friend request me without previous words, you will be denied because obviously you did not read this. There is no greatness in being just another number. I love meeting new friends. If you want to collaborate, tell me. If you have thoughts about my work, tell me. If you feel we might connect, tell me.
I don't need praise, just a Connection.
I am not a number. Go meet real friends.
**One last note... I have dealt with many photographers that have not done what they said they would, one way or another. Have some integrity. To avoid any unpleasantries, I advise your courtesy.
Thank You! Be well!
