I grew up in the woods of North Florida where I spent all my free time exploring the wilderness that stretched out before me. Although I feel most myself when out in the countryside I've now found myself living in the London, England area and frequently holidaying in the metropolises of Europe. I still have a lot of uncomfortable feelings when in urban environments so I take my outsider viewpoint and apply it towards capturing the urban scenes that delight and disturb me. Similarly I have a definite outsiders approach to photography having only had a single semester of actual teaching in photography. Instead I study the work of those who inspire me and forge my own path as my own muse directs.
