Expression: "To make ourselves known and understood; to exchange our feelings, our thoughts."
To express ourselves is one of the greatest desires as humans and one that has motivated me from a young age to do many things. As a kid I loved to draw, as a teen I learned to play the guitar, and my further desire for creativity led me to the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, graduating with a Visual Communication Degree.
During my stay at FIDM, I bought my first camera. Photography became a hobby that kept me sane through the rigorous schedule of the Fashion Institute. Consequently, I learned to capture expression through both visual communications and this new found hobby. It did not take long to marry my training and my hobby. As expressions of joy, excitement, love, and peace found their way into my photos, it became apparent that I had found my calling. It took a special trigger to realize this is what I will spend my life doing.
