Spend the the last two years working on building up my portfolio. Eye for design, so I believe my photos and graphic design reflect my artist style.
Photography isolates the fundamental artistic ability to see the extraordinary. It is through arrangements of light, angle, lense, film and a split second decision to capture the moment that make photographs an extremely personal expression.
Personally, I am into vipassana meditation. I practice at Against The Stream in Santa Monica. Cultivating mindfulness and present time awareness inspires me to create at the same time remain calm and forgiving towards others and myself.
These are posters have been choosen as poster contest winners. Winners include Abott Kinney Festival, Willie Nelsen, Miles Davis.
