I grew up amazed and astounded by all things running the gamut from science through art. Unfortunately I had to streamline my interests to satisfy the education system and the left side of the brain won out. Throughout my undergraduate and postgraduate education at Cardiff University and the University of Birmingham (UK) I pursued a career in biological science through the study of viruses and the immune responses to them. I have continued with these themes of research for subsequent post-doctoral studies in New York and currently work on the immune mechanism of disease in multiple sclerosis.
Meeting my wife-to-be, a creative writing and poetry major, awoke the long-dormant right-hand side of my brain. Looking to channel rediscovered artistic energies I finally found the medium of photography. I am inspired by the natural and man-made world around us; from the everyday mundane in the places we call home, to the sights and sounds of the exotic in those places we explore. My creative work is heavily informed by my background in natural and medical sciences, as well as an interest in anthropology and history.
