I am a photographer trained in the art and science of photography since I was a child. I practice photography as a sacred right of magic art, and share that experience with others openly.

With an image I can speak volumes into the hearts and minds of strangers I may never know perhaps beyond my own lifetime. The moments of life are as fleeting as the sun on the horizon. I seek to capture the very essence of our common existence, through the colour of the air and the favour of the light. I am always trying to see back to the source of things. My perception of our plane of existence is as a screen, making the light bearable by filtering it through smoke and lives and memory.

I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Photography from the Emily Carr University although I have studied photography since I was young in many forms under many masters. I have worked as a freelance photographer for many years all the while seeking venues for my personal work.
