When I was young I always wanted to make movies. I was obsessed with them. My favorite memories were going to Universal Studios as a kid, and going on the two hour tram tour. I got to see more of the back lot as well as all the props from past films. In high school I loved making Super-8 movies both for school and for fun.-- When I was 23, I was about to enter Art Center Design Film School when I fell ill and was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus. For the next two years I laid on my parents floor while going through Chemotherapy. As I began to recover, I wanted to create art again. I have always “seen in pictures”, so I turned to photography. Over the course of 30 years I have taught myself different ways of using the medium of photography as tool for self expression And along that journey enjoying the act of “breaking the rules” and experimentation.
