About Me

I am an artist and commercial photographer based in Port Angeles, Washington.


My artistic philosophy is based in my personal experience of the world.

I see the world as a canvas of heart draped on a structure of mind. Emotion and intellect work together to generate the reality we all experience. For any artist, it is critical to be aware of both your overt, intellectual communication and the emotional subtext both.

I seek to create images that balance these two ends of the spectrum. The process begins well before I take the photo and continues well after. Through all parts of the process, right up until the final physical print is put in the frame or digital asset delivered to the client, I meditate on that emotional and intellectual duality and try to communicate and enhance its presence in my work.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me to collaborate. Whether it’s commercial work or pure art, I love to meet people and work together to tell stories.
