Biography: I borrowed Momís twin lens reflex when I was 8 and my father taught me the essentials of composition. In college I became a student and friend of Howard Stephens who expanded my technique into different processes, opening the box and inviting me to play outside of it. Panicked after graduation, I chose a path of office work with photography relegated to being a creative release. Recently, it has taken its proper place as the center of my activity. As I continue to grow, I experiment with the tools I have as well as moving my art from individual images to series, telling stories as I go.
