    Artist Statement

    My primary goal as an artist and as a person is to photograph the world as I travel in an effort to savor and share my life experiences. I enjoy having the power to transform the commonplace day into something that is unique and memorable. By employing techniques such as Tilt Shift, HDR, Vertical Panoramas and Time Slice, this allows me to grow as a photographer while exposing our everyday world in an altered visual context.

    Ultimately I am driven by exploration and discovery which my photography affords me the opportunity to travel the globe translating the visceral into the visual. By sharing my perspective with others I aim not only to present a photograph but also a lens into my feelings and outlook in a particular moment. Photography and travel may as well be one word to me. My goal as an artist is to "X" off as many places around the world until I run out of places or run out of time.
