I grew up in the Southern California coastal community of Venice Beach. Here, my first influences, water and an eclectic urban landscape, taught me the power of capturing a moment. Life’s motion paused, preserving a feeling or memory, and setting the stage for the next moment. Venice is a place I’ll always return to, for nostalgia as well as a fresh look.
In 2006 I moved to Colorado. My photography focused on the Rocky Mountains and the surprising effects real weather and the passing of time has on a place and it’s artifacts. I didn’t see degradation but instead, beautification as objects aged and landscapes transformed under the effects of seasonal transitions.
In the Fall of 2011 I relocated for a brief stay to the state of Wisconsin. Exploring new surroundings influenced me to examine, document and interpret rural Midwestern farm life. Old barns have a story of their own and I have always been drawn to them.
In the summer of 2013 I headed back west to my home state of California. I now reside in Petaluma, a small town just north of San Francisco in the heart of the wine country.
I learned early and often in life, nothing rests for very long. One thing leads to the other and each part is crucial. I use the latest technologies to capture, interpret and share the details of life as it happens.
