I am totally fascinated by octopus (octopuses/octopi/octopuses).
I also kinda/really/totally like this photography thing. So, voila.

I grew up on the creative side of the advertising world and had the pleasure of working with hundreds of clients around the world; telling their unique stories in very unique ways. Along the way, I've had the pleasure of working with an incredible number of talented photographers, directors, cinematographers and imagemakers. I became envious of their art and craft. At first, I saw it as a means of reducing my stress-filled life. As a Chief Creative Officer at the world's largest Advertising Agency Network, I needed a distraction. So I bought a camera. And then another. And another. My new hobby and daily "creative exercise regimen" quickly turned into a joy-filled and all consuming passion.
I love talking to all sorts of people and seem to have a knack for getting them to open up and share themselves despite the intrusion and intimidation that a serious-looking camera often represents.
I like seeking out and sharing things I find interesting. Beautiful things. Powerful things. Poignant things.
I am incredibly patient and am often rewarded with moments of magic.
I also enjoy taking something ordinary and making it something well beyond that. (To paraphrase Ansel Adams: "…making pictures, not just taking them.") Illustration and painting are other passions and I love creating unique photocompositions.
One thing led to another and now I'm published, in private collections and winning awards.
Happiness.So now I have two jobs that I absolutely love.
