Astro Bisection This night sky image was taken in the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest outside of Big Pine California.

I have always appreciated photography and began my own journey years ago refining my eye for seeing, respecting, and capturing the beauty around me. I have found myself drawn to photo essays since still photography is a powerful way to translate conditions and experiences between different cultures. I am motivated and dedicated to using my skills as a photographer to tell powerful and meaningful stories that evokes an understanding and/or action.
