I am a photographer and educator located in San Jose, CA.

I love taking photographs and am most happy when my finger is on the shutter button. My primary focus is using the human body as art. I express this in many forms but my goal is to use the body to mimic the shapes and curves that are found in nature. They might be the gentle slope of a sand dune, a curve of a rock, or the rolling hills of a mountain range. I tend towards abstracting the body shapes so the viewer isn’t always sure at first glance if the image contains a body or not.

My passion is photography and I love sharing that passion with others. If you love photography as much as I do, you are in the right place.
