My passion for photography started back in college. Then it was simply a means to document life & memories. It was not until recently that I started approaching photography as a form of artistic expression.
My photography style & vision were fostered while I traveled the world as an adolescent. Living and experiencing a multitude of cultures opened my eyes, instilling within me a deep sense of respect for others along with an appreciation of their beliefs. At the same time, being constantly on the move sometimes made me wish I could just hit the magical pause button.
The common underlying theme that I try to convey in my images is a sense of solitude and calmness. We might lead hectic and fast-paced lifestyles, but if we sit back and pause for a moment, we just might be able to enjoy the world all to ourselves.
The kinds of pictures I enjoy taking include food, floral and night photography.
I currently live in the suburbs of Chicago, along with my wife and young son. Besides photography, I enjoy all things culinary and spending time with my family.
