Seeing the world through a different lens ...

I am photographer specializing in surreal photography and emotive portraits currently residing in the San Francisco Bay Area. I use a variety of mediums, including film, digital, and infrared photography to make my art.

Like most people, I like taking photographs and capturing special moments.  But I did not really begin to study photography until I saw my first infrared picture. The ability to see the world in a different light, with different colors, immediately grabbed my attention and made me want to learn more about the art of photography.

Photography is my creative outlet. It helps keep me sane when the world around me seems anything but.  My personal passion lies with creating art that makes you think and feel - that allows you to see light in a different way.
