"I have always been an "out-of-the-box" thinker, and desire to document my experiences artistically. My early work, specifically black/white and infrared film, quickly developed into a passion of artistic skill and social perception of my 'everyday' life, documenting the mundane, something familiar in an unfamiliar way, drawing lines from my past personal experiences, always seeking juxtaposition. Some of my personal topics focused on social norms and the American family. I spent many years on the street and in the darkroom, perfecting the environmental "candid portrait" and "lifestyle" images. My portraits are intimate statements of the person I am capturing in the moment."
