About

Though the camera is the primary catalyst for my work, I strive to produce images that go beyond merely capturing a split-second in time, and attempt to create work that is deeper, deliberate, and more emotive. I do not want to be confined by allowing the camera to have the final say on an image, but rather, desire to use everything that I know about photography and art as a color in the palette of the final piece of work.
