In 2004, on my way to Nepal, I laid my hands on a digital camera for the first time and discovered a pastime that quickly became a passion. Since then, I have been constantly searching for opportunities to combine photography with every element of my life...including travel, friendships, work, and family.
As a former engineer, I've always enjoyed my creativity with a bit of structure. Photography allows me to indulge my appetite for technical gadgetry while *trying* to produce something that I (and hopefully some others) love to look at. To me, a perfect image is as interesting on the thousandth view as it was on the first. Early on, I found inspiration in any image that sparked the question: “How’d they do that?!” More recently (and much more personally), I committed to taking my photography beyond technique in daily exploration of images as an emotionally sustaining force. And I enthusiastically vouch for the power of making consistent shooting a lifestyle choice.
I am a native of Baltimore, MD, now residing in the San Francisco Bay Area. I spend my days in the marketing department of a biotech startup and devote practically all other time to photography (and packing for flights).
I thank you so much for taking your time to browse some of what I have to share, and I welcome your thoughts and comments.
