i adore things of beauty and grace. Surrender. i began photography during a Watchfulness practice about 10 years ago. i work full time as a VP of Operations in an Engineering firm in New Orleans. Soulfulness inside photography seems to pull at my heart constantly. i am mostly interested in doing portraits of women or images that evoke vulnerability, spirituality, sensuality, reverence and quietude. i am intrigued with still life of innate objects ----- antiquity, convents, monasteries, Russian Orthodoxy, opera and poetry inspire me. i live in the French Quarter. i have done a few "Call for Submissions" and have "placed" twice in minor competitions. i am a member of of the New Orleans Photo Alliance.
