"Life isn’t made of stories that you cut into slices like an apple pie.

There’s no standard way of approaching a story.

We have to evoke a situation, a truth. This is the poetry of life’s reality."

Henri Cartier-Bresson

Photography is a perfect medium for the 21st century. I am constantly amazed at a photographer's ability to convey complex information while telling engaging stories about people, places, and objects and their relationships with each other. I was born in NYC and spent much of my early years living in NYC and just north in a suburb in Westchester County. At 18 years of age, I bought my first car and began looking across state lines and national borders for photographs.

These portfolios are about my passion for exploring and pushing my limits as a photographer. As an individual responds to specific images, the image triggers and elicits feelings, thoughts, and potential dialogue with that viewer. Ultimately this interaction invokes the rich and dynamic power of the still photograph and the stories they impart.
