Photography gives form and shape to the constant “looking” I do at the world around me. It dovetails with my tendency to work alone, but then share what I’ve seen and come to know. It’s lead me to the streets of New York City and the back roads of other many other places to capture images. Sharing those images by publishing or displaying them reveals who I am and what I’ve “seen”.

I’m an image-maker, looking for the “parts” of the whole picture before my eyes that will communicate to another what I am thinking when I click that shutter. My most successful images are those which do just that.
