Photographer, art director, designer, artist… I’m a happy dreamer.
Nature often gives us a glimpse into parallel worlds – similar to our own yet surprisingly exotic.
Since 2007, I have been developing a portfolio named Dream Cloud Images – a collection of photography created mainly in Palm Desert, California and the surrounding Coachella Valley. The work is a tribute to the natural beauty of this unique environment and creative spirit that’s part of desert living.
