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.
Of COURSE We Pulled Over….
Yesterday, after brunch in West Oakland, we spotted what we thought was an amazing piece of art. So we did what any normal people would have. A 30 minute photo shoot.
