“I love creating new and interesting, aesthetically pleasing things, using humor, color and storytelling to create hyper-real scenes and interesting portraits. I enjoy capturing both the ordinary and out-of-the-ordinary in unique ways, finding inspiration and humor in the everyday mundane. My goal is to make people think and feel through a single image, either thinking about the story behind the image or pushing people’s minds beyond reality to get imagination going. If people get some sort of entertainment from my photos, then I’m happy.”
