I am a passionate photographer from Annapolis. I aspire to be at once a itinerant photojournalist, a scientist, a musician, and a lifelong learner. I believe I have learned everything I know about the world and the meaning of this life because of my close connection to and observation of photography. In the midst of this devout examination is my calling. And you don't get involved in something artistic like this for the money. You get involved because you cannot help but get involved . . . Photography is a bold statement from within, a half peeled orange, a furtive glance, the forgotten details of the pleats of fabric on a shirt; the things I have seen, the places I have been; the meaningful, the transcendent, the striking, and the elegant; the camera to the eye, the flash of a synapse, the click of the shutter, the pleasure that floods the senses â€“ empowerment.
