BIOGRAPHY
Update: I have not uploaded in a long, long time. What you see here is from at couple of years ago. As a now non-paying member, I do not upload, and I do not participate much. The work however is still a part of my history, and will remain. As a photographer, I photograph children. Their innocence, boundless joy for life, and their energy move me.

As a photographic artist I photograph the things I am passionate about..... ancient relics, found objects, decay & sorrows. I search for the sublime, the unwritten, unspoken message that lies just under the surface. I contemplate and wonder of the life's journey my subjects had before they found their way to me.....Stop for a moment.... keep your mind open. You may see, you may hear.

My portfolio here is a home for some very personal bodies of work. Much of it is my soul laid bare. So what you see is what you get with me. This is my path, my journey. Sometimes I stumble and fall... I manage to get back up again. I share it because I *need* to. Don't know if that makes sense, or if anyone really cares. But here it is anyway.
