My images are made with photographic film, pixels, ink and substrates. I capture the mysterious, magical mysteries of the world as I see them, while traveling along an uncharted but everyday journey. I seek out things I may not understand or want to know more about and at the same time relate a fresh story or evoke emotion from the viewer.
