Color. Texture. Shapes. Designs. Single-frame stories. I think of my work as little poems, collages, and designs that are created within my camera; these come from my love of nature, people, graphic & textile design, architecture, interior & furniture design, music, and graffiti art.
I also am a filmmaker and writer, so the impulse to capture unique 'scenes' is never far from my mind when collecting images as a photographer. Some of my influences include Marimekko design; Spanish architect and designer Antoni Gaudi; filmmakers Pedro Almodovar, Andrei Sarkovsky, and Douglas Sirk (and their amazing cinematographers and art directors); electronic music, and the many writers and public figures who's writing and words have deeply influenced me - from Henry David Thoreau to Malcolm X.
I am based in Brooklyn, NY, and work as a commercial photographer and writer in New York City.
