I spend my days wandering, through creeks and gorges, down ravines, across fields, along hedgerows, and in and out of gardens.

My photos are the results of my explorations. I share intimate images of things that people may not see, of familiar things and places from unusual angles in both space and time, finding a connection with this-place-right-now. I wait for the perfect moment of light and shadow, sometimes showing a small part of a larger whole, or highlighting nature either before or after its usual prime. Taking photos is a form of meditation, requiring me to both literally and figuratively focus on the subject. In that moment, I leave behind the rest of the world, feel rather than think, and become balanced mentally, physically, and spiritually. I hope that the images I create bring some of that into the lives of those who see them.

Although I have no formal training, I grew up in the area around Ithaca, NY, with a camera in my hand. My mother was a photographer, and my Elementary School had a darkroom that students were allowed free access to, so I began taking photos and developing and printing them from the age of 8 years old.
