About

I am a photographer based in San Francisco. 

My wanderlust for photographing the human spirit is insatiable. I enjoy wandering urban environments and photographing the soundless energy that unfolds all around me. My focus is to capture those organic, raw moments that we pass by each and every day. I feel I can give my audience much more of an emotional and relatable experience this way.

I mainly use a photojournalistic approach while discovering new life on the streets. It allows me to work in more of a natural setting. This is where I discover the most "soul" at any moment.

I prefer black and white. I find it less distracting than color and it helps isolate my subject matter. This way you are more focused on what's in the photo rather than what's on it.

As the old saying goes "Life is a journey, not a destination." We need to learn how to slow down and occasionally look at what and who is around us. There is a whole other world there that I escape to every time I press my shutter. Photography is my escape. It's my journey.
