I'm a native Angeleno, born in 1970. I first picked up an Olympus camera with a normal lens when I was 14. I began shooting in black and white, developing and printing from home, using darkroom equipment my grandfather passed down to me. I've been engaged ever since.
Los Angeles, as a location, has kept me and my camera hooked because it is expansive. It rises from the desert and is surrounded by mountains and ocean with an array of cultures, languages and life experiences. In any direction, there's always something that can turn you on.
I travel between Los Angeles, Nicaragua & Buenos Aires, working for an organization called Global Mobility (www.globalmobilityusa.org) which manufactures and delivers wheelchairs around the world to those who have no other means of mobility.
The camera is the ultimate passport, providing the opportunity to experience countless unexpected moments throughout the world.
