With a focus on fine art and conceptual portrait photography, much of my iPhone photography draws upon my dark sense of humor and my love of surrealism and all things absurd. That being said, I also enjoy the spontaneity of unplanned work including street photography and other styles.

Having originally been trained in film photography I bring much of that “manual” approach to my digital processing as well.
