I have had a camera in my hand since I was a child. In 2007, I took my passion more seriously and bought my first SLR camera. Since then, I have been spending much of my time photographing any beauty that has come in my path, whether it be nature, animals, people, architecture or performance. When Occupy Wall Street began in 2011, I almost immediately joined the fight for social justice using my camera as a way of revealing truth and encouraging change. I see so much beauty in the world, but unfortunately our fears and insecurity often lead us away from that beauty. I have decided to dedicate my life and my gift of photography to help lead us back to to a place where we realize our connection to our natural environment, the universe and everyone and everything in it.
