Artistic Statement

My tool of choice is commonly called a camera, yet it is merely a mirror which I hold up before the world.  My work aspires to show humanity its own reflection, reminding each of us of the beauty we hold within.  

The world is my canvas.  My language is color, recording memories with strokes of light.  My subjects shine through providing me with just the right exposure.  

My work is created to the rhythm of life, the vibration of people.  From the first note to when the melody finally fades out, life is a continuous catalog of chords surrounding me.  My music is my photography; my instrument is my camera.  The stories tell themselves, I am just a composer.

Make magic.
