I'm an exhibiting artist and a serious cinephile. It all started with an interest in photography that was rooted in the image as document and myth maker, an interest that threads through all of my projects today. Eventually, I transitioned to video and film. It was very organic, pretty much a compulsion. I love film and film traditions in all forms of their expression. Even as a child, I would prefer a movie to a cartoon seeking them out morning, noon and night. The best thing is that, through both my personal and professional work, I've discovered my kinship to traditions and my love of being a witness to them. I was a wedding photographer for 5 years which was incredibly beneficial during my transition to film. I definitely know my way around and understand the special dynamics of this very big day.
