I began my love affair with taking photographs as art in high school when I took my first photography course. We explored the use of film in both black and white and color, processing techniques in the darkroom and using early photo-manipulation through digital scanning and computer aided drawing. I can still see influences of these early explorations in my images today.

I grew up south of Houston, Texas, where the bright colors and vibrant influences of the Texas-Hispanic culture greatly impacted my view of the world. Lively colors such as reds and greens adorned many of the buildings and local environment.

My view of my environment, and therefore my art, is toned through the lens of my childhood and similarly vivacious hues.

My health has had a great impact on my choice of subjects. Born with a defective immune system, I often seek out subject matter I can photograph without compromising my health. My subjects tend toward landscapes, nature, botanicals and wildlife. If I photograph people, it is often street photography, distanced and unposed, capturing them in the environment I was in as well.

I am also a rocket scientist. My art reflects my love of learning all things computer, technology, process and digital. My photographs are unique in the processes I use to create them.

I have been influenced and taught by NASA photographers, the same ones who teach our astronauts to take photographs during their missions in space.

This scientific approach to photography ensures details are the focus of every story told.

Photography serves as an outlet for my creative brain. As a rocket scientist, I spend much of my time immersed in difficult and complex processes. My art is my healing therapy; it allows me to decompress in the serenity of the scenes that I capture.

Art is a healing factor to me, and I believe in its power to help keep me healthy.

I believe people can change their outlooks through changing the art in their environments. With this in mind, my goal is to bring my art to as many people as I can by keeping art, and the artist, accessible.
