        I am a Canadian based photographer whose fascination with photography began around the time I was given a rangefinder film camera. Avoiding the art institution I was enrolled in at the time and exploring the landscape of a steel town through stages of neglect and revival — the city of Hamilton showed me a reflection of my own difficulties with direction and self expression at the time.

I started looking at street photography, photojournalism, and documentary photography. Discovering photographers like Henri Cartier-Bresson, Diane Arbus, or Stephen Shore inspired me to start thinking about photography as a practice, so I took my camera for walks more frequently.

I continue to find myself in the isolation of others, the human environment, and the less decisive moments, in what I think of as documentary photography work.
