Statement

I create unapologetic narrative based travel, creative, and lifestyle photography. The following photographs capture moments I am privileged to have witnessed. My goal is not to search out perfect light or limit myself to shooting at golden hour nor do I lurk in the shadows with a telephoto lens. Most important to me is to capture images that convey the story of the experiences I’ve had in lands afar and at home.

This initial version of this site is intentionally simplistic. Photographs are posted roughly in the order that they were captured and refined with the latest below this statement. Thank you for viewing my work, you can read more about it here or follow along on Instagram if more convenient.

DESPUES DE 12P.M ToqueLa PuERTA

DESPUES DE 12P.M ToqueLa PuERTA - Cusco, Peru - Canon EOS XTi

A corner of the world that exists no where else that I got to experience. On the other hand, a scene of commonality making the world smaller than it is. I could go find a similar composition on one of the many streets in Denver occupied by Ma and Pop mechanics. A thousand miles away or around the corner on Colfax Ave. or Federal Blvd.? In the end its not important. What matters to me is that I like it and it invokes meaning and memories of experiences past. I love the story this scene creates in my mind. I’m drawn to the texture, the color, and the evolving message of the utilitarian signage.
