Photographer. Traveler. Observer. Story teller.

The camera gives me an opportunity to spend time with people and in situations that would otherwise not be available. The photograph is the byproduct of the experience.

My photographic journey began with eyes closed, in the ashram meditation halls and mountain caves which initially brought me to India. The colorful festivals, fascinating people and culture I discovered on my first India visit re-ignited my early passion for photography and have kept me coming back again and again to the country I deeply love.

My photographs have been exhibited in Southern California galleries and published throughout the world. In addition to winning many awards, I’ve been selected to participate in juried exhibitions such as Review Santa Fe and The Art of Photography Show with curator Arthur Ollman, founding director of the Museum of Photographic Arts, San Diego.

When not in India I split my time between Carlsbad, California and Santa Fe, New Mexico.

My work is represented by ZUMA Press.
