NEW PHOTOGRAPHY COLLECTION:
TO LEAVE WITHOUT INTENT TO RETURN
I GOT LOST IN THESE BEAUTIFUL PLACES,
AND I FOUND MYSELF WITH LITTLE INTENT TO RETURN HOME.
I FOUND MYSELF LOST IN MY DREAMING.
I FOUND MYSELF LOST IN MY DESERTED MIND.
DESERTED MIND, ABANDONED THOUGHTS, I LET IT ALL GO
AND I FOUND MYSELF IN ALL THE THINGS MY EYES COULD CATCH.
SO I INVITE YOU TO GET LOST TOO.
We are all artists, and as artists, whatever we choose to create is usually for ourselves. So, though these photos were taken for me, I'm choosing to share them with you, and maybe they'll become a talking point for your home, or inspiration for your office.
I lived in Dowtown Los Angeles in 2020 and my camera and my dog saved me from the confinement of my studio apartment. During the early days of the COVID-19 Quarantine-Lockdown and the BLM Movement, life felt heavy and scary, so I had to find peace somewhere other than my bottles of wine. The streets is where I roamed to escape my thoughts. To marvel and to cry at what mankind is capable of.
This book of photography is for anyone who needs to get lost in something other than their own minds or social media. My love letter to Downtown Los Angeles aka DTLA.

I had my first Gallery Exhibit December 1-4, 2022 in Los Angeles.
I featured nine of my photography prints, on 24in x 36in canvas.
For four days I exposed myself through my work. I exposed myself to the public, to complete strangers. It was absolutely terrifying, but it was also absolutely gratifying and validating. I wanted my work to be this tangible thing, and go beyond the digital confines of social media.
I love photography, and the way it retains a truth, and I love architecture and landscape photography because it's humbling in reminding us that we're small on this Earth; that we're small enough to not matter, small enough to make mistakes, small enough to take risks, small enough to do whatever we want.
I want my photography to live in your space, to remind you of home, remind you you're human, remind you life is magnificient.
