I’m so glad you’re here

This show is not about me.

It is about the honorable individuals I have been able to document along my creative journey. My images have become my voice. They speak when I don’t have the capacity to speak. Each image displayed in this space has a unique story and has inspired me to find beauty in everyday life. My camera is a tool to share stories that are often overlooked. If you’re reading this, please don’t give up on life yet. If you’re still breathing, you still have purpose. I would love to stay connected with you. I am grateful for you.
