I am a freelance photographer and visual artist based in the East San Francisco Bay area. I live on a 23' sailboat. My overhead is so low, I can't even stand up while making coffee at home.
Because of the military, I grew up with a perpetually changing home, and the same impermanence continues to guide the way I presently live. The relevance of belonging somewhere and being elsewhere, whether out of necessity or choice, drives a lot of my personal work. In the same way that elements of time and place are integral to photography, I find these themes are so determinant of one's identity and personal experience;
the opportunity to visually share a distinct story of another, is why I press the shutter. Shooting is my means of processing spaces less familiar, that echo of universality, the ceaseless yet often subtle beauty in the mundane.
