A strong interest with awe has led my exploration of the world since I was young. Over time the acts of photographing and investigating merged, allowing for wonder and an inquisitive spirit to remain in my image making. A unity with place has always informed my practice; no matter where I am the images share a common message. This universal but rare feeling of being one with one’s environment is what leads me to create photographic art. 

While an image freezes in time the motion of our reality, it has the power to induce the same pause within the viewer’s mind. A consistent theme throughout my photographs is this gateway to pause, silence, stillness, contemplation, and reflection. My work attempts to share this experience of human noticing by capturing and putting on display the nature that surrounds us.
