I am an artist, a creator, an inspirer and a dreamer.
In 2005, I picked up a camera and instead of recognizing the image that I captured, I saw the moment that I had preserved, stealing it out of time and holding it there in less than an instant. From that moment on I became intrigued with the fine art, the scientific processes and the communication value that one image is capable of holding. Communication is a two-way street however directing its flow through images can create a new kind of beauty and understanding. An image can transform what would normally be seen as mundane and common and transform it into something that is full of meaning and sometimes unexpected. That transformation is the essence of my inspiration everyday that I look down my lens.
As a photographer, my goal is to capture life and create a communication line through expressive images. In the process, I hope to fuel an artistic fire, inspire emotion and enable dreamers, like me, to achieve.
