A little about me: I am a photographer, born in London, England but now working in (and out of) the lower Hudson Valley, New York which is 90 minutes north of Manhatten. 

I am insatiably curious  — about our world, how it works (or doesn't), the people in it and what connects us. My camera is my enabler, a tool which legitimizes my innate desire to explore, ask questions and look for answers. 
My preference is towards subjects that provoke the social conscience or are hidden in plain sight.

Favorite Quote: “The explorer who will not come back or send back his ships to tell his tale is not an explorer, o
 an adventurer...” 
                  ― Ursula K. Le Guin
