I am a man, a husband, a father and work as a product manager most of the day. Also I'm a regular mentor within the G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers.
The rest of my time I create poetry and photography.
My artistic intent is to reflect the world as I see it. The way I see the world is often not what many would expect. From the time I was eight years old, I have worn glasses. When I take them off everything changes. Clarity becomes blurred, representational images become impressions, and form loses both edge and contour and becomes suggestive. Colors melt, then blend into something that is more atmosphere than descriptive scene.
My visual poetry images have been inspired and influenced by two artistic movements: impressionism and abstract expressionism. They deliberately have an absent of scale and context as I want to invite the viewer to explore their own perceptions of reality.
I want to communicate through my images the beauty I see in the world, the moods I sense in others and feel myself, and the meaning I glean from the events of life as I interpret them with head, heart and eye. And sometimes our world can be so beautiful that it nearly hurts or it is even a wee bit kitschy.
But some other images are much darker, moody or tenebrous - reflecting the darker sides of our lives and world.
But whatever you see in my images or feel through my words, it is my hope that you also see before you one man, doing his best to share his inner truth.
