Speeding through life trying to do something without being someone

For ease of explanation, I may call myself a photographer; however, this is not just about photography; it’s about an exploration of the world around me and how I fit into it. To do that I use all the tools I can; it just happens that the camera is the most natural medium for me to express.

I spend my time creating an interlinked body of work with common underlying themes that ultimately trace back to my personal experiences and interactions in this life.

My body of photographic work is broken into two ongoing series; Urban Dualism and Compatibility Mode. It is primarily high-contrast black and white and explores aspects of humanity using multiple exposures to convey metaphorical and philosophical concepts.

My emphasis is on creating one-off pieces of fine art as well as very limited edition handmade photo books.
