Artist Statement



Self-Portrait 2012

I was drawn to photography to record social and political changes that were happening around me and were forever altering my worldview.  Photography soon became my way to explore and deepen my understanding of the social environment, allowing me to get in close and interact with those whose values I shared.  

I currently live in Sonoma county, CA where I can explore the beauty of the natural environment. The recent fires of the past two years are examples of both the susceptibility of the land to ignorant climate policies, as well as the resilience of those who live in this environment to protect it from further devastation.
