Photography is a way to quiet thechatter in my mind and stop time altogether. To walk within my surroundings andfind beauty, in simplicity and the ordinary. A way to grow not only creatively,but as a whole.
I like to take light and darksituations, or things randomly passed by, and challenge myself into making themmoving or thought-provoking. There are moments when completely awake, peoplefeel as though they’re walking in a dream, and I want to show you those momentsthrough my eyes and lens. My goal is to give a visual to the voices of naturewe don’t always choose to listen to.
Every day you can find me searchingout and exploring unfamiliar locations with a camera in hand. It’s where I findmy peace, strength, and bravery.
If one of my photographs havetouched you or made you smile, I consider myself a successful artist.
In seconds, a moment becomeshistory, and the camera is a magnificent tool that can keep them foreverpresent.
