I have been taking photographs since I was a teenager, but never considered this could be anything other than a casual pursuit until years later. In 2010 I took up photography in earnest.

I work in many different styles and genres, because I enjoy art of almost every style and genre. I find it difficult to understand how a person can only appreciate one type of aesthetic or find merit in only one mode of expression. In my experience one can achieve excellence in any genre so long as skill and ingenuity are present. I enjoy portrait, fine art, landscape, and even macro photography. I appreciate the polished, high gloss of fashion and editorial photography, as well as the ambient, esoteric noise of experimental fine art photography. My goal is simply to create images which succeed in evoking emotion, recognition, or a sense of mystery.
