I became obsessed with visual storytelling while working in medicine in my early 20s.  Id go into the operating rooms of the hospital where I worked on my days off to shoot photos of surgeries.  Although I was studying medicine my goal wasnt to document this or that surgery or procedure but instead capture the enviroment itself.  It is an amazing place full of countless stories of life and death.  The staff who work daily in the OR are a breed apart; they are a unique mixture of emotion and logic.  They have to remain calm in the most harrowing of circumstances.  They show compassion and caring on a level few people outside of their world witness or understand.

Having the ability to capture all of the detail of a place in time for a faction of a second while telling a story that is both honest and compelling became a form of communication I needed to master.  Photography, like cinematography, is another vocation that allows my mind to open up and work fluidly through ultilizing both hemispheres of my brain. 

Endeavours which challenge me creatively and technically at the same time are the ones I am drawn to instinctively. 

Below are some presentations of my photography work from the past two decades.
