Artist Statement

I am an independent freelance photographer, third generation born in Washington, D.C. Until recently I lived in a rural community, on the edge of the Chesapeake Bay, enjoying the naturaI beauty and historical interest of Annapolis and DC. Now I live on the outskirts of Houston, another vibrant and exciting city.

“Connected” is an image captured in the Observation Lounge at the Top of The Rock at Rockefeller Center, NY. I found a strong image in the structure of the room as well as the beautiful and interesting human connections.

My Architectural images are examples of the urban development. I want them to capture the intensity in the rhythms of the city. The structures are living, breathing environments and the interactive design is an integration of structure, man and nature. I am excited to capture the energy of life in these spaces that is implied as much as seen.
