Photography has been a large part of my life since I was a child.� It was funny because at first I never realized that I could pursue a life in the arts until I realized that people payed attention to my work.� In the begenning I always created work that held up to my perception of a perfectly created photograph.� By this I mean that I was all about exposure, film maintanence, and printing quality.� After starting at Columbia College Chicago, I held on to those beliefs but soon realized that I could do whatever I wanted while creating my work.� I started to experiment and discover what the actual art meant to me while holding onto the perfection of quality.

I began exprerimenting in the studio while I was working for Dennis Manarchy in Chicago.� I was beginning to learn that I had to create work that made me uncomfortable.� I began to push the envelope on what I was doing and just get a little crazy.� I still worked with a thought and kept my mind wrapped around an idea but I was not afraid to let go and create something outside my thought process.� Everything was not perfect but the quality of my work began to increase in my mind and I loved it.� Photography is a great tool for me to express my inner feelings even though I don't see it at first.� It is something that I truly love and that is what brought me to New�York.� I am still currently assisting and holding seperate jobs but my work is growing and I am learning to shoot for myself.� I am working with ideas that I�originally did not understand and that is what pushes me to discover and think.� I create work that envokes ideas.� I love the fact that I can do something that creates emotion within a person and that it can be different for everyone that spends sometime within my world.�
