I can’t say that I’ve always wanted to be a photographer, but as a teen I’d I find myself spending hours dedicated to finding the perfect subject, the perfect time, or the perfect lighting. When I graduated high school, I contemplated pursuing a career in photography; however, "the what-ifs" took hold - what if I’m not good enough? what if I can't find a job? If there is one thing I've learned in becoming a photographer it is that you make things happen. Photographs aren't taken they are made, success in life doesn't happen; it is made.
Being autistic, I retain useless pieces of data like iron fillings to an electromagnet – but unlike a magnet I can't turn it off. 
Growing up I knew I was not like the other kids. I was small for my age and often teased for being a know-it-all and a literalist. As a result of my grade-school experiences, I trained myself to become unassuming and vanilla. I desperately wanted to fit in by blending in. In college, I studied photography, attempting traditional tropes such as portraiture but instead gravitating towards the abstract. That is how I discovered my unique perspective of the world deserved more flavor than I was allowing. I embraced my proclivities.
Now, I don't photograph people; I photograph patterns, places, and products.
This site contains galleries for these categories. I’d love your support in helping me payoff my student loans and medical bills as I’m also diabetic.
Thank you for your patronage.
