About The Artist

It was inevitable, I suppose, that someone born into a family of painters and sculptors would find an outlet for their artistic expression one way or another.

Some say that my photographic work owes more to the modern abstract painters and sculptors I was exposed to growing up, than contemporary photographers. For me, even landscapes and portraits contain a strong abstract element. To my mind color, texture and composition are just as important as the subject matter, and I often try to cut away complexity to reveal the elegance of line and form within an everyday scene.

My philosophy is not to arrange anything specifically for the camera or ask a subject to strike a pose. Rather, I prefer use the camera to isolate and re-examine what I see in the world - just as it is. In this way I hope that you, the viewer, will shift your perspective - even if just a little - and experience the world in a subtly new way.

My photographs have been exhibited in contemporary photography galleries in cities across the United States including San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Portland as well as galleries in Texas, Virginia, and Vermont, among others. I am a member of the Bay Area Photographers Collective (BAPC) and a regular contributor to the online project SPARK, which pairs writers and visual artists to inspire new work.

I hope you enjoy the selection of pictures I have included here.
