WHEN 2007 – Infinity and beyond
WHY Ahh, but the strawberries, that’s… that’s where I had them. Photography is life. And life… is vibrance. And contrasts. Life is feeling the color. Life is seeing deeper. Life is looking longer. Life is travel. Life is learning. Life is grasping the big picture, but life is knowing that what ultimately matters is how you handle the details. I am in every image I make. As you view it, so are you. I will not explain the meanings hidden in the depths of the images, I will not presume to rob you of your own joy of discovery. Just like life. It is your own. It is what you make it. There is nothing that makes me more driven to do what I do than knowing that total strangers have my work hanging on their walls and are enjoying it every single day. I don’t want you to see what I see. I want you to feel what I feel. Life is photography.

P.S. If you really want to know all the boring normal bio stuff nobody really cares about, i.e., hometown, schools, kids' doings, wife's admonishments, etc., well, color me skeptical, but I'm not giving that information out free. You'll have to buy me a beer sometime. I promise I'll tell you all about it.
