I am happiest when I am traveling, exploring new places, meeting people, and creating memories.  Photography is an essential part of the experience – ask anyone who knows me.   


I literally see in pictures and use a camera to record moments in time that are beautiful, inspiring, humorous, authentic and/or touching. I tend to see things that many people don’t, particularly when it comes to water, shadows and patterns. I love to create abstract images of ordinary objects.  In some images you will recognize objects such as buildings and boats; others are a palette of colors and patterns that look like an abstract painting. In that respect, my photography blurs the boundary between photography and painting.  


My technique and joy is to capture the stark and finite beauty of the departing moment, when the ordinary becomes the extraordinary, when the real appears surreal.

Enjoy the view.
