My passion began in high school. I was always interested in the visual arts of drawing and painting, but my art teacher suggested that I branch out into photography as well. Photography was a lot different from drawing and painting, but I learned that I liked that art form as well. In my first year as a photography student, I won a local contest. My submission was a black and white photo of my then 10-year-old nephew putting together a train set. I knew then that photography was something that I would pursue.
Currently my images have appeared in print, and websites of Core Detroit, Portrait of Detroit, Depict the D, Visit Detroit, Eastern Market Corporation, People for Palmer Park, Lensculture, and Metro Times. I have been selected to cover music festivals in Detroit. I am also a winner of the 2017 My Detroit postcard contest.
I photograph everything! This is my hobby and I take great pleasure in it. But this website is the result of friends and family urging me to take my passion a step further.
Welcome, and thanks for stopping by!
