I only photograph real life, because I tried the fake stuff once and almost choked to death. Life is too short to fake it. Our real lives are pretty freaking awesome, but we tend to forget that in our everyday slog. Having images of what your life really looks like can remind you that you like your family and they like you.

Photographs bring order in a disordered world.
They allow us to make sense of a nonsensical chaos that visually attacks us everyday. My goal as a photographer is to hold space for that chaos, allowing the viewer to make peace with it and display that chaos as something to be proud of. I am there to photograph whether that craziness happens with in our personal space or in the world at large.
