About Me

Everything that could possible happen between people happens during photography. It’s cool to see life thru a lens and play out on that stage over and over again. For me photography is a chance to peek in the human condition a little bit and see what makes people human and too see what makes them tick. It could be love, hate, stress, fear or anything for that matter but I have seen it through photography. I love it and I have to see that real burn out. If I saw photography as a job then I would get burnt out. I love to see a different way on how to understand people and even the relationships between people. Seeing so much beauty, emotion and action in photography made me open my eyes. Every day and ever place I walk I see something I can capture with a camera. I am always making notes and creating my own Rolodex of ideas. When I photograph, I document life happening before my eyes. It’s dynamic, fluid, and I must react to what’s happening before me to capture its essence. I love the problem solving and the hunt that comes along with photography.

Older I become...

The older I become,
We wiser I become

I learn to discern opportunities I need to walk away from
Threats I must absolutely embrace with open arms
Weakness I ought to consciously celebrate
And strengths I need to completely ignore

The older I become
The better I become

I learn to talk more and deliberately listen less
Plan complex battles without complex strategies
Rejoice in the face of grossly irrevocable failure
And dream new dreams in the face of refreshing prosperity

The older I become
The weaker I become

I learn to constantly see way beyond myself
Embrace the plain needs of companionship and fellowship
Regrettably, take stock of purposes and things undone
And become increasingly aware of a higher being than my existence

The older I become
The stronger I become

I learn to accept that strength lies in my mind
Be thankful for every new breath of air I take in
Pay more attention to the simple & mundane things in life
And naturally skew towards redemption and reconciliation

The older I become
The younger I become

A world of darkness is about to end
An eternity of wonder is about to begin
Unlike birth, death is certain and precise
And I decide where my new home will be

The older I become…
