Music can take you on a journey, make you laugh, cry and touch the deepest part of your soul. So can a photograph. I come to photography as a musician, attracted to visual narratives that define an unsuspected beauty in a specific place in time. I am a champion of the overlooked, and see my photography as a way to research, create change and inject some beauty into the world.

Room for Growth
It's funny how symbolic things become when transformation is apparent in one's life. I've been noticing how the little succulent plants I bought over a year ago were outgrowing their ceramic pots. They didn't have enough soil to grow in and the taller ones started listing and I propped them up with pencils. The soil mark was way to low and I could see the new growth on the bottom of the stems coming in. .After months of noticing this, and unfortunately ignoring the nurturing they needed, yesterday I finally re-potted them into larger pots and as I did I felt connected to them. Ignoring them was like ignoring myself and my need to change and grow. Though I had been watering them, it was not enough and I could tell they were uncomfortable...and squished. It felt so good to take care of them, and give them larger pots and a space to grow in...they were instantly happy.
