Photography began as a personal journey of discovery. My eyes opened to the world around me. The mundane became magnificent.
From a reflection of an iconic bridge in the water, or angles of architecture in the buildings along my daily walks, to a child playing with her shadow or discovering joy via "snow in a can" my world became magical.
I use photography to gain a new and more comprehensive understanding of what it means to live fully engaged. Through my photography, I hope to show the beauty in the world around us and what one can see in a pause. In portraiture people see themselves in a new light; they see the beauty that they alone possess.
