Landscape has always spoken to me, called me, and inspired me. As an explorer at heart, I feel a deep connection to nature. For me, everything from a simple walk in the woods to a hike in the mountains or desert can be a spiritual experience. Photography enables me to combine my love for the outdoors with my curiosity to explore and passion for making images. Although my background as an artist relates more to drawing and painting, I have focused the past decade on using the camera as my paintbrush. I am not interested in what the camera sees, nor am I trying to “take a picture.” My goal is to create an image that brings you into the scene, reflects what I felt in the moment, and communicates what I experienced.
