About

 

 

“Do not feel lonely, the entire universe is inside you. Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.

 Set your life on fire. Seek those who fan your flames.”  
― Rumi
 
 

As we journey through life, there are sights, sounds, and smells that we will never forget.  As we experience these sensations, moment to moment, emotions arise simultaneously, and the two fuse together to create memories.

While the present moment is infinitely and inherently fleeting, it is our memories which construct so much of who we are. Playing with textures and light, subjects and shadows, I am continually excited for any opportunity to capture a moment that speaks to the soul. 

Photography is a passion that came to me indirectly, through my love of film making. I am fortunate to have already lived what seems like multiples lives in my short time on Earth. Yet, from directing films, plays, and live performance art, to music production, fine dining, running a successful real estate business, or any other incarnations of myself, two constants have always remained: curiosity and a desire to share. 

So it is with great pleasure I share my work; a continual expression and progression of growth, experiences, and contribution to the world. 

I hope you enjoy!
