My photographic practice really began in High School in the early 80’s, with Black and White film. But it wasn’t until after University, that I systematically learned my medium and it wasn’t until digital editing┬ábegan in the early 90’s, that it became possible to make the images I visualized.

Although, looking back at my Black and White work, I see the seeds of what I investigate today. For the majority of this time, I’ve been motivated by geometry and rhythm – both of which I have a strong affinity for, developed early in childhood.

My latest work, unite these two interests, as they manifest in the urban environ.
