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
