Artist Statement

I want to share the faces, the feelings and the realities of human issue through my lens. Studying life unconsciously has become a habit and capturing moments is and will always be a passion. I believe this fascination has led me to be who I am today. My camera has allowed me to snap, record, and share that which is meaningful. At this point my work reflects my exploration with different types of visual storytelling. It speaks about my thoughts, feelings and my beliefs; about our culture, society, life, humanity, and ultimately the Universe.

I Shoot; I Travel; I Become!

Oz is just great!, had a good feel for cutting together the video footage I provided, had the right feel for the background music, provided regular updates, and were responsive and quick in making changes as the project progressed. Would use again !
