At heart, I’m a storyteller. Photography is a medium of story — within every capture is a moment, recorded in time, written in light, bound by the vision of those who created it. In all of my work, whether intricate photo illustrations or in the construction of a singular frame, I am seeking these stories. Seeking to build those lasting impressions that connect vision and viewer through the frame.
