I first became enamored with cutting edge approaches to creating imagery 12 years ago through a dance photography workshop I attended. From that day forward I have always been interested in leveraging technology and collaborative approaches towards creating unique imagery, especially involving high speed movement.
My father, was a passionate artist who loved photography and introduced his love of creativity to me and my siblings when we were quite young. He used to tell us often that he found sleeping an inconvenience that prevented him from using his creative energies every waking moment. I have spent most of my life building and managing organizations, creating novel approaches and coaching others. Any success I had is largely due to this infectious approach to living.
Starting in early 2015 I have made the decision to spend the rest of my days fully engaged learning, experimenting and creating imagery on a full time basis. I am determined to create something unique every day, build community and pass on any lessons learned to others.
