Artist Statement I borrowed Mom’s camera when I was eight and never actually returned it. Dad taught me composition and together we learned how to make magic in a darkroom. And it is magic.

Majored in a self-designed Humanities program where I wandered through a number of disciplines. This taught me to see the bigger picture with the relationships and connections between seemingly dissimilar items. Scored a marketing job after college, which taught me a lot about goals, passion and delivery.

Today, my work is a mashup of things I love doing: photography, speaking, teaching. All of my time in the theatre, the darkroom, choir and conference rooms has merged. I constantly look for new ways to approach life as art and help others look at life and their work differently.

My photography reflects how I view the world: as one huge creative playground where I try to capture bits and pieces to share with others. I’m not constrained by certain themes; rather I continually try new subjects as I find them. They build on one another and I find that the story is evolving. Other artists work with a mix of media; I do the same, changing techniques and cameras as the situation dictates.

One role I plays is that as a catalyst to help bring out the creativity in others through speaking and workshops. The energy and curiosity we had as children remains a part of us; we just need to invite it out to play.

I try to visit a new country every year and search out Mexican restaurants upon arrival. In case you’re wondering, there’s one in Dushanbe, Tajikistan.
