I create photographs so I can be people's eyes, tell their stories, and to show them the extraordinary beauty which might otherwise seem ordinary or go unseen...
when words are too small, and emotions are too big,
when delight fills our stomachs, and adventure fills our souls,
those are the indescribable fragments of life which can only be told through photographs...
I create photographs to give a visual voice to life's journeys.
What is felt is real even if we can't describe it.
My vision is to make those feelings and connections come to life
and make them tangible through my photographs.
