About me
I'm a Photographer that absolutely loves being in front of the camera as much as I do behind it. I tend to enjoy making work that involves conceptual-based themes, avant-garde, experimental, free-flowing, magical, surreal, enchanting, vast luminosities, improvisational themes with cinematic qualities that evokes psychological experiences, as well as new ways of looking at what an Image is/can be. I enjoy "using objects as symbols of states of mind," and other displacements. I love the phantasmagorical, the mysterious, created disorder, secrets, wonders, miracles, the bizarre, the absurd, the uncanny, and the sacred.

Since I'm easily amused and have a deep-seeded interest in many things, my collaborative goals tend to be wide-open. I will work with just about anyone, including collaborations with other artists: painters, dancers, musicians, etc. I do not mind collaborating with other photographers that are interested in the connective tissue of creativity. I'm not partial to all forms of creating, and I enjoy both the new and the old traditional forms of shooting.

The term "Beauty" has far too many cliches attached to it. I'm not interested in the Representation of a type, genre or audience, because I find most EVERYTHING to be Beautiful, in that sense, which is why I welcome deformations, scarring and any other characteristics that are often deemed "abnormal" to the majority of our culture and society, as a whole. I want to explore these characteristics because of the Human elements that are associated; I find these attributes to be all quite Beautiful. To me, Photography is an experience, like experiencing an act.

I never limit myself as an artist and am open-minded to exploring just about any avenue. I've been published in many online/print magazines and have been exhibited Internationally on four different occasions (Australia; Tel Aviv, Israel; Nanjing, China and Tuscany, Italy). I'm interested in collaborating with those that are open-minded and are seeking to create beautiful, sublime and often unordinary images in various scenes and situations.
