Welcome to my website! It is a long time coming but finally, I have some representation of my work that I feel good about. I’m releasing some of my favorite images out to the world.
This is a site I can work with – add and subtract, multiply and divide. Future work will include silver gelatin favorites, some alternative processes, and iPhone entertainment. But for now, I’m content. Let me know (kindly) what improvements I should consider. And, thank you for stopping by.
