I was born and raised in Hawaii and like many who live on an island surrounded by 2500 miles of ocean I developed a serious case of “island fever”, the over-whelming need to leave your beautiful little rock and see what’s out there. I arrived in Los Angeles without much, including a plan. In time I developed an interest in graphic design and eventually went on to attend the Art Center College of Design where I earned a BA with Honors.
My interest in photography began when I found myself in search of another creative outlet, one in which I no longer had to work within certain boundaries and rules to please a client. Through photography, I am my own client and there are no rules. I’m free to create what I want. Although I like taking photos of all sorts of interesting things, my current photographic interests lie in the world of fine art abstract photography, unveiling hidden images and textures not normally seen by the unaided eye.
