“Love conquers all” wrote the poet Virgil more than two millennia ago. Three simple words that have shaped my reality. Art has that power. To transcend time and space and connect with a being far removed from its creator. Being a photographer is a way of distinguishing and interpreting our reality. Distilling an endless series of moments into an expression of truth, into an image that speaks to someone. In my art the creative atmosphere is the same, the desire to translate this tenuous existence into still frames, to stop time for a moment and look at this life, at this dream we love so deeply.
Born in Venice Beach, Ca and raised between Los Angeles and the wilderness surrounding the Ojai Valley, my creations are a marriage of the urban experience and the insights afforded by the natural world.
