Live, travel, adventure, bless, and don’t be sorry.
For as long as I can rememaber, I’ve been fascinated with color, shape, proportion, and a sense of place. Photography can be as poetic and compelling as the written word. I hope you enjoy my visual, if oftentimes accidental, poetry.

You’re invited into a wonderful world of color and motion with complex compositions boldly created in brilliant Fauve colors, linear but always casual and fluid. View familiar objects in a new way, with fine tuned lines and forms.
With both the band Hypnic Twitch as well as playing all the instruments in a basement studio, I like to think my music is on the warm side of cool with thought-provoking lyrics and diverse, excellently crafted music.
