I could copy and paste my official company bio here, but what would be the fun in that? the truth is that I have not the clue exactly who or what I am yet… although as I just turned 31 I’m starting to figure it out a bit more. My journey is played out in images, both still and moving, and in the eyes of the three wonderfully made daughters that I call “clouds”. My current state of evolution is not self discovery, but selfless discovering as the world around me changes and remolds itself into something more wonderful everyday as we realize that its always growing… just not always in the right direction. My career as Photojournalist has allowed me to see the world in so many ways
I don’t even know how all this started, but I’m going to try and explain it anyway
I had a pretty dramatic childhood..or at least one that stands as dramatic to me. My father was not around, my mother worked a whole lot, and I was an only child. In the space between moments of lonely I found myself encapsulated by the stories surrounding me. In comic books there were stories of fantastic and awesome, in Star Trek there were stores of new worlds and new civilizations, in James Baldwin there were stories of pride and understanding. ironic enough my mother is a story teller (and/or historian) and a professor who teaches others how to properly research stories. that gift, and many other of her gifts, were subtly seasoned into me from a very raw and young age.
I don’t just look for moments, but the unspoken and untamed explanation into the moments that led to them.
This blog is a collection of nouns and verbs that comprise the entire story that my team and I get to tell. I was never the kind of guy to hold back, so what you will see here are stories that stand as raw and beautiful as the moment thats we were fortunate enough to capture them. Unless my daughter comes in here and kicks me in the shin again… I think she’s mad I used her Ipod to play Chuzzles
Welcome to a world without fear and a love without limits.
