I am a husband, father, educator and artist - not always in that order.

The every-day becomes a meandering path that began with certainty, but ends somewhere unexpected. I am interested in what is still in the moments between busy everyday life and the plans for future events. In this work I find connections with subject matter that revolves around the people and spaces I love to those moments of still and quiet I seek. These images explore those connections.
This work is concerned with finding simple representations of kids' play with ambiguous scene and action. It is an ongoing series that will be added to infrequently, so check back for more.
Family, Memory, Dreams
Recalling memories of places and events with family, and finding connections with dream imagery during a summer of sketching, this body of work explores the connections I found between my family, memory, and dreams.
Made and Found
The images on this page are collected from various series or simply from a day's shooting. I have them here in a sort of self curated collection of images I enjoy seeing together.
In this work I have been photographing my children with a sense of parental observer and interested bystander. As parent, I find it amazing how the light reveals in them a sense of generations and wisdom that confounds my core as I know them as my kids. As a bystander, I find myself enjoying the ambiguity of what they may be thinking or feeling at the moment I shoot, and see the power in their genuine expression. The images I have made explore a sense of narrative that leaves open the point at which you encounter the scene of the story. They begin to connect days to weeks, and fold over into what has become a few years of my kids growing up so quickly. This is why I have titled the series ‘Folded Open’.
