I seek to communicate a meaningful message in a visually-engaging and thought-provoking way.
A critical part of that process begins with understanding my subject matter, as well as the goals of my client. Each new project provides an opportunity to grow and learn—about the history of design, in the sense of what informs and inspires me, but most importantly, the potential for communicating a concept that is both original and memorable. My work combines imagery with typography in a minimalistic, organized way, often incorporating large amounts of white space, which allows moments of rest and reflection.
Photography Artists Statement
Through photography, I attempt to understand myself, my environment and memories of the past. I am drawn to places, objects and people with a sense of age and history. I like to think I am telling the stories that they cannot. Many of the images I consider most successful are ones I’ve captured spontaneously—relying on an almost-unconscious inner direction (along with the ever present camera) to guide me. When I am able to tap into this unconscious force, I react to the subject matter out of instinct instead of over-thinking composition and design principles, as I often do in my client-driven projects. I believe working more instinctively allows me to bypass my inner critic and connect more closely with my unconscious thoughts and memories. I often combine subtle, hand-written text with my photography to further explore my thoughts once the images are taken, and reflect on the meaning I’ve gained from the process.
