I first became inter­ested in pho­tog­ra­phy as a kid in grade school. After that, I didn’t do much pho­tog­ra­phy for a long time because I became involved in play­ing clas­si­cal piano, which became my focus dur­ing pre­teen and teen years. After study­ing for a Mas­ters’ degree in music, I worked for many years as a soft­ware engi­neer, using mostly IBM prod­ucts. I trav­eled fre­quently and became inter­ested in pho­tog­ra­phy again; I now work as a fine art pho­tog­ra­pher full-time.

At first, my inspi­ra­tion in pho­tog­ra­phy was the “out­door cal­en­dar” type of pic­ture, but with expe­ri­ence I have tried to make my pic­tures artis­ti­cally inter­est­ing, and more in line with the expe­ri­ence of good per­for­mances of my favorite music. Along with that, I con­tinue to learn about pho­to­graphic tech­nique, in order to com­mu­ni­cate my artis­tic ideas effectively.

I live out­side of Chapel Hill, and I par­tic­i­pate in var­i­ous art orga­ni­za­tions in the Triangle.
