I grew up around hunting dogs, murderous neighbors, and the driving rain in the most Norman Rockwell family outside of TV-land until the family exploded and finally got interesting. I moved to Japan in 1999, thereby breaking my own heart. I’m still in recovery for that and the big contradiction is how I’ve learned to love, and love, and love…

Favorite Fisheye feature: It never judges me.
Expert technique: Get close. I’m a big supporter of intimacy and the fisheye begs you to get as close as possible.
Lomography? The build up, the letdown and the priceless successes that each roll affords me.
Message: I’m not a big fan of photography. This all feels different: the community, the angles and the constant surprise. I’m a huge fan of Lomography.
