Since graduating from the San Francisco Art Institute (Painting Major), I have always maintained my passion for Art, but to pay the bills, along with the hefty student loan, I professionally transitioned into the world of Graphic Design and Web Development. A much more lucrative line of work, but it left me desiring more from life. I decided to leave my job, get rid of most all my possessions and start over.
For the past four years, I have been transitioning from a life spent chasing money to a life centered around creativity. I left my home in Hawaii, moved to Istanbul, and spent a couple of years traveling extensively around Europe. Being on the go for so long also meant a transition from studio art (painting and drawing) to photography. I eventually settled in a tiny village in Sicily and have spent the past two years refining my photographic skills and developing my voice in this new medium.
