I was born and raised in Wisconsin. I could say that I am a musician, an artist, a writer; but I prefer “observer.” Life is such a strange thing as well as art (who could truly distinguish the two?). I am mostly preoccupied with issues of perception and reality, abstract and representation. I do not believe in dichotomies. I believe life is not black and white, but a spectrum. This is what occupies my mind’s eye while photographing. How is “reality” being presented to me and just how abstract is nature, a building, or flowers?
