Welcome to my website! For most of my life, wherever I was, whatever I was doing, a camera was nearby. My earliest sense of photography as a passion was during college when I found myself driving throughout Appalachia. The juxtaposition between the natural beauty and the extreme poverty affected me deeply. What I was unable to express in words, I tried to capture in film. I've come to realize that the ongoing challenge of trying to capture a sense of an experience within a single frame is what keeps me shooting.
By trade I'm a psychologist and psychoanalyst, working with words and symbols to understand experience. It sometimes feels worlds apart from photography. At the same time, searching for the essence of an experience seems to be be the essence of both.
