Artist Statement

I grew up in inner-city Philadelphia. In a loud, colorful world of so much hustle and bustle, I found beauty and solace in singular moments of time. Photography became my main tool, to explore, to learn and to document. After studying photography in Boston in my early twenties, I traversed the country, working seasonal jobs and living on the road.

As I grew older, a strong instinct to spend more time in sparse and natural places began to germinate. The endless countryside and the lives that dotted the vast landscape became my main interest. My work is an ever evolving inquiry and exploration of the relationship between human beings and the natural world in which we inhabit and continue to modify. I utilize photography, writing, audio recording and mixed media journaling to process my observations and interactions with communities within the developed metropolis, the rural countryside and the remote wilderness.
