My whole life I’ve experienced an intense need to create things, but finding photography took me time. I've worked as a painter, built musical instruments, and even worked as a handy man at times, but eventually my path led me to the camera. Making photographs has helped me learn to deepen my connection with people, and to truly pay attention to the world around me. Photography has given me the life in which I'm fortunate to travel the world and share other peoples stories. For that I'm remarkably grateful.
