My photography has been not only a method of recording and documenting, but a way of seeing. In the same way drawing from observation forces you to examine and observe what is in front of you. The camera has been a tool to engage with my surroundings. The urge to capture an image has led me to places I might not have gone otherwise. And there is a great joy in the sharing of that fleeting moment of awareness.
Over the years, I've been fortunate to have the opportunity to hold many occupations, including community organizer, art teacher, bicycle messenger, web designer, photographer, scuba instructor, system administrator, uchideshi and business owner. My current project is founder and designer at 22 DEGREES.
