As a sustainably conscious vegetarian for the past 5 years, this significant transition in my life has artistically inspired me to translate my skills as a Professional Photographer into a Fine Artist. This inspiration has allowed me to dig deeply into the fundamental concept of what type of human beings the world sorely needs and I believe that the common thread we have as a species all starts with food. This single source of inspiration has led me to travel the world on my own. Through my travels I have learned about cultures on levels I never thought I could understand, capturing images of moments and documenting each culture's dietary habits and traditions, it has fueled my desire to want to learn about the basic needs of every culture and how it connects us all as the human race. All of this is the foundation that will translate my experiences into creating a higher conceptual level of Fine Art.
