Personal Quote:

I liked photographing people kind of on the sly with a long lens. I tried to capture stolen moments and find humor in them. I took pictures in natural light with interesting colors and shapes. But photography wasn't my main interest. I loved music. I played guitar in high school bands and that's still one of my passions. See more »
