I don't set out to produce art about one subject or another. I'm never without a camera in hand so I am constantly shooting and sometimes the images are left in the computer and other times they are develop into more in-depth ideas and detailed images. I didn't set out to be a commercial photographer or to create photographs relating to social commentary. As my portfolio developed and people started to review my work, the descriptions started to emerge and I began to notice patterns I had and hadn't intended.

At school, the only classes I really pay any attention in are photography. I simply wasn't interested in anything else and I think my obsession with not wanting to be in the typical monotony of the work place and work force starts there...

Some of my subject matter is about people's passions in both employment and hobbies. I photograph everything from people playing with their classic cars to animals in both nature and zoological preserves to pirates, fairies, knights and royalty at renaissance faires.

None of it was intentional - it all developed and evolved over time. People always ask for my artist statement but I've never liked to explain a certain piece of work - if you've made an image and that's how you wanted it to be - hopefully it can speak for itself and whatever it says to the viewer - it's the right message because there isn't a wrong and a right message. Each person takes something a little different from the same picture.
