BEHIND THE LENS

Being born and raised in Trenton, MO there was always a need for an outlet. First, it was drawing and building, then music, then photography, and along came poetry, all by 16 years old. It all works together, these creative elements merging at the focal point of whatever is being created at a given time.

Behind the lens is the essence of creating, art and bridges. Cultural bridges, economic ones, healing ones. It's an idea of community and connection between individuals, communities, states, and countries. Art is a common link that anyone can understand. Through it, we communicate, entertain, make known, inspire, aspire, build businesses, create possibilities, transcend our dreams.. It's a way for people to speak with never meeting. Photography - art in general - is by far the best means of communication I have ever come across.

 

Behind the lens is images captured by my eyes. It's poetry, music, entrepreunership, people in moments, a love for travel, and a lifestyle cook and gardener. Behind the lens is a strong desire to create.
