I began photographing in 2004 when asked to photograph a group of students in my 7th grade math class.

As I explained to them that I had no camera they strongly suggested I get one. And so began this adventure with what I see through the lens of a camera. 

I enjoy photographing many different subjects, but none more than the Oceano Dunes in Oceano, California. The Oceano Dunes are a magical location, rather observing close-up or from a distance, there are always more gifts to discover. This series of images within the three galleries includes what I have named Tranquility, Contours and Intimate, describing the thoughts and feelings I have each time I return to these dunes. 

Edward Weston, Brett Weston and Ansel Adams all found this location worthy of their time.

I find my vision and soul are most at peace here.
