My images have a mission: to capture both the rare and the everyday scenes that envelop me and to present them in a captivating way. It may be an image of a beckoning remote landscape in a foreign land, an ancient castle in the Irish countryside, a grieving sculpture in an enchanting Czech cemetery, jazzy street performers in Louisiana's French Quarter or the inner city roughness of street scenes of Washington, DC. For any subject, I want the images I create with my camera to generate unexpected thoughts and emotions in the viewer. It is my hope that my images impart candid awareness of details and reality that may otherwise go unnoticed in our rapid-fire world. What matters to me the most, though, is that I produce art that people want to put on their walls.
