Artist Statement:


My work is diverse and covers many interests that are close to my heart.  Whether it's a photo of a tranquil river, or a dynamic stage performance, my goal is always to tell the story of the moment.  One of the reasons that I love photography is that it is the only medium where one can literally stop time.  To be transported by a photograph is a mysterious experience and one that I hope to elicit in my viewers.
