Merry Go Round

Merry Go-Round

Shortly a er this photograph was taken, a group of parents had the merry go round removed from the park in Portland, OR because their kids kept falling off and getting scuffed. The parents sued the Parks and Recreation for damages and now most, if not all, merry go rounds have been removed from public spaces. This image is a classic in the sense of this was fun in its purest form.


Self taught photographer working with some of the best people in the field from Neiman Marcus,
Williams-Sonoma and Nike, I was able to gain knowledge and appreciation for the process and my technique. Seeing things from at least two perspectives would lead me to continue to create introspective bodies of work that play with the mind and the eyes. Using Light as my main subject, I am able to illuminate the subtleties of life, death, color, contrast, texture and emotion.

My work is a result of continued hard work and perseverence. Working with designers along the west coast, Chicago and firms in New York, I never cease to get inspired by and motivate the people surrounding me.

Clients consist of art collectors in Southern California and the Pacific Northwest, The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and Hewlett-Packard, Inc.
