My entire photography career, I have approached image creation the same way...by asking 'what's the story?' Everyone has a story. But, I have found that there is often more to a story than what lies on the surface. A story beyond the lens of what we think we see or know.

It is these stories I tell in images. It is these stories that you will also find here. People we know, news we have seen, situations we think we understand. But, do we? Our stories shape who we are and when told can be a powerful part of our personal brand. We can also inspire others by the lessons we've learned and draw the cords that unite us all a little tighter.
