With the depth and breadth of Chicago as my backdrop, I have the freedom to explore a wide range of subjects, from nature to documentary, to portraits, places, and events. I am particularly drawn to urban details and abstract perspectives. While the South Side of Chicago is where I call home, the entire city is my canvas, providing me with endlessly fertile creative ground.
I really enjoy how photography not only allows me to bear witness to life as it happens, but also to create completely new ways of looking at the world... provide fresh points of view on even the most ordinary things in our extraordinary world.
