I started life as the biggest nerd ever. At some point I guess I
got tired of it. Now, though I still remember nerdy things, I
thrive more in creative endeavors. I'm a street and modeling
photographer. I've shot for everyone from friends without money at
all, to Frederick's of Hollywood. I also spent several years
touring locally with a band. Cliche, I know, but c'est la vie.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Documenting large portions of it with my DSLR camera, and
translating the rest of it into music, so my soul doesn't get all
covered in emo mildew. Yuck!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

Other people and their motives which both fascinate and frustrate.
(or sometimes inspire) Logic. Mathematics. Physics. Photography.
The math and physics involved with photography. Morality. How the
world would look through someone who's opinions are opposite my
own. Ways to better myself.
On a typical Friday night I am

Wild birds talk to me, and sometimes land on my finger, as if I'm a
Disney Princess. I'm not sure what to make of that.
