I am a professional photographer & a self-proclaimed vagabond. I live creatively & abundantly on very little, and I share that life, with you, through the unique story-telling capacity of my relationship with camera. In no other way can I imagine being able to invite you so deep within the labyrinth of my mind.
I thrive on this intimacy. It is what fuels my life's work. I want to tell our collective story, the story of being human. I honestly believe that the more we can know & understand each other, the more swiftly we can connect. And that connection, my friends? THAT is what it's all about.
People ask me what kind of photography I do. And consistently, even after 13 years in business, I stumble over how to respond. Sooooo, "People!" I say. I photograph people... our stories, our heart aches, our weddings, our businesses, our children, our lives, our loves. Graduations, portraits, festivals, live music. I photograph all of it. Wine festivals, Tattoo festivals, art shows, concerts, Burning Man, Glastonbury, The California Mid State Fair, rodeos, travel, Semester at Sea... the list goes on. I travel internationally for work. I have photographed in over 27 countries, sailed around the world twice, and ridden a bicycle across the United States of America. My life, my work, my art, my story, my eyes - I share it all, with you....
And WHY... do I do what I do? 'Tis the ever-important question. Because I genuinely want to share... everything... our stories, our lives, so that we may all open to a more connected world, a world in which we constantly strive to care bigger, to live more gently, and to encourage togetherness and love.
